This colorful curried chicken salad recipe makes great use of nectarines when they’re in season. You can also substitute peaches or even halved purple or green grapes, if you like.

  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup water chestnuts, chopped
  • 2 cups diced nectarines

  • Dressing:
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
