  3. 1/4 cups sliced water chestnuts

  4. 1/2 lb. seedless green grapes, cut in half

  6. 1/2 cup toasted almond slivers

  7. 1 can (8 oz.) pineapple chunks, drained

  8. Dressing Ingredients:

  9. 3/4 cup mayonnaise (I use a combination of light mayo w/reg mayo)

  10. 1 tsp. curry powder

  11. 2 tsp. soy sauce

  12. 2 tsp. lemon juice

  13. Directions:

  14. 1. Combine salad ingredients. In another small bowl, combine dressing ingredients.

  15. 2. Coat salad ingredients with dressing. Mix well; chill for several hours.

  16. Note: If I make this when my college-age daughter is home, I leave out the water chestnuts, chopped celery, and almonds (at her request). Made this way, it's her favorite chicken salad recipe, but my favorite way (and DH's) is with all the ingredients. :o)

  17. SOURCE: an Episcopal church cookbook which says the name comes from this being served to Queen Elizabeth II when she visited the University of Virginia on July 10, 1976. On the menu that day: chilled cream of asparagus soup, this curried chicken salad, Virginia ham, biscuits, chocolate mousse, Pinot Chardonnay.
