  1. In a large bowl, whisk to combine the mayonnaise, lemon juice, curry powder, salt, and pepper. It should have a relatively thin texture, like buttermilk.
  2. Add the chicken breast, chopped apple, celery, cashews, raisins, and chives. Stir well to coat.
  3. Ideally, refrigerate the salad for an hour or two before serving, so the flavors can meld and the raisins can plump. Then enjoy!
