Chicken Salad in Tomato Petals


Tomatoes are sliced to resemble flowers in this tasty chicken salad recipe. Grapes and curry powder help to flavor this chicken salad, and almonds give it a nice crunch.


  • 2 1/2 to 3 cups diced cooked chicken
  • 1 apple, peeled, cored, and diced
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 2 teaspoons grated onion
  • 1/2 cup seedless green grapes, halved
  • 1/3 cup toasted slivered almonds, optional
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1 cup mayonnaise, or to moisten as desired
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • dash ground black pepper
  • 6 tomatoes


Combine chicken, apple, celery, onion and grapes. Add almonds, if using. Blend curry powder with mayonnaise, salt and pepper; mix into chicken mixture until moistened as desired. Chill thoroughly. Core tomatoes then cut into sixths, but do not cut all the way through. The six wedges of each tomato should form a tomato "flower" when the wedges are slightly spread. Fill the tomatoes with chicken salad.
Serves 6.
