  • Juice of 1 lime

  • Salt and pepper

  • 1 cup Greek yogurt

  • 1 tablespoon EVOO – Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • 2 scant tablespoons curry powder

  • 1 inch ginger root, peeled and grated

  • 1 large clove garlic, chopped

  • 1/3 cup Major Grey mango chutney (preferred brand Patak’s)

  • 1 roast or rotisserie chicken, at room temperature, skin removed and meat pulled into bite-sized pieces

  • 2 ribs celery from the heart with leafy tops, chopped

  • 2 green spring onions or 4 scallions, chopped or thinly sliced on an angle, whites and greens

  • A couple small handfuls seedless red or black grapes, halved

  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted

  • Bread-and-butter pickle chips/slices

  • 8 slices English muffin bread or good quality white bread, lightly toasted

  • Leaf lettuce, such as red, green, butter or gem

Combine onion with lime juice, salt and pepper in a small bowl to quick-pickle the onions. 

 Combine the yogurt, olive oil, curry powder, ginger, garlic, salt, pepper and chutney in a mixing bowl. Add chicken, celery, green onions, grapes and almonds, and stir to combine. 

 Make sandwiches: On a slice of toast, layer a few bread-and-butter pickles, lettuce, some chicken salad, pickled onions and another slice of toast. Cut corner-to-corner and serve with colorful Terra Chips alongside.
