The Lazy Creek Gewurztraminer is perfect with this lightly mild Curried Chicken Salad.
4 servings


2 tbsp. chicken broth
1 tbsp. mild curry powder
1 cup mayonnaise (you can also do ½ cup mayo and ½ cup plain Greek yogurt)
2 tbsp. mango chutney (Major Grey’s)
1 tbsp. fresh lime juice
1 tbsp. lychee juice
2 –3 cups diced cooked chicken
1 cup diced, unpeeled Granny Smith apples
1 cup diced, peeled fresh pineapple
½ cup unsweetened coconut
½ cup chopped dried apricots
¼ cup golden raisins (In the summer I used fresh seedless grapes, cut in half.)
½ cup toasted almonds
Baby romaine leaves and/or rice noodles
Garnish with crisp wonton strips

Stir chicken broth with the curry powder in a small saucepan over medium heat until thicken, about 5 minutes. Transfer to medium size bowl to cool. Whisk in 1 cup mayonnaise, mango chutney, lime and lychee juice to the curry mixture and stir to blend. If you want dressing thicker, you can add more mayonnaise. Add chicken and the rest of the ingredients to a large bowl. Add the dressing, mix gently together. Spoon chicken salad on top of baby romaine leaves or rice noodles and garnish with wonton strips.
