Spicy Curry 'Chik'n' Salad

There was a restaurant where I grew up that served a salad similar to this.  Unfortunately, it closed a few years ago. Luckily, my mom had the recipe!  This is my version, with a few changes of course...

And just to give you an idea of how yummy this is...

My friends and family are usually more than willing taste testers.  I do have a 'meat & potatoes' brother-in-law who was over at our house the other day, who tends to shy away from trying my meatless recipes.  I did however, get him to try this... and... HE LOVED IT!

8 oz. of your choice of vegan 'chik'n', prepared according to package, roughly chopped into bite sized pieces and cooled (I used the Morningstar Farms Mealstarters Chik'n Strips)
1 cup celery, diced
1/3 cup red onion, diced
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1 1/2 cup red grapes
1 cup cashews, roughly chopped or left whole depending on your preference
2/3 cup Follow Your Heart Vegenaise
3/4 teaspoon curry powder
1/4 teaspoon white pepper

1.  In a small bowl mix mayo, parsley, curry powder, white pepper and red onion.
2.  In a larger bowl, combine remaining ingredients.
3.  Combine the two bowls and serve.  My favorite way to eat this salad is on a sandwich, but it's also good on a plate full of salad greens.
