Use chicken or turkey in this attractive composed salad. If you like, you can make the dressing a day ahead, then mix with the chicken and vegetables shortly before serving.

Curry dressing (recipe follows)

3 cups diced cold cooked chicken or turkey

1 cup thinly sliced celery

1/2 cup thinly sliced green onion

Salt and cayenne

8 to 12 large romaine lettuce leaves, washed and crisped

2 large ripe papayas, peeled, seeded, and sliced lengthwise

1/4 cup salted roasted cashews

1 lemon, cut in quarters

In a large bowl, mix curry dressing gently with chicken, celery, and green onion. Add salt and cayenne to taste.

On each of 4 dinner plates, arrange 2 or 3 romaine leaves. Mound equal portions of the chicken salad on each plate. Arrange papaya slices alongside. Sprinkle cashews over salad. Offer lemon to squeeze over salad and fruit. Makes 4 entree servings.--Barbara Weeks, Olympia, Wash.

Curry dressing. Mix 1 cup sour cream; 2 tablespoons minced candied ginger; 1 tablespoon each curry powder, lemon juice, and Dijon mustard; and 1/2 teaspoon cumin seed.
