Grilled Curry Chicken Salad

One of the things I love most about summer is chicken on the grill. I always make at least 6 or more breasts so that we have plenty left over for other uses. I don't think I've ever met a chicken salad that I didn't like but I especially like the taste of one made with grilled chicken. There are so many different approaches to take: sweet, savory, traditional? I decided to go with a curry flavor in this dish but if that's not your thing it can easily be left out and the dish will still be great.

2 large grilled chicken breasts cut in small chunks
2 stalks celery, diced
1/4 cup red onion, diced
1 cup green grapes, halved

2 heaping T mayo
Juice of one lemon
Salt and pepper to taste
1 t curry powder

Mix up the dressing and add to the chicken mixture. The addition of toasted pecans or walnuts would be good in this but I didn't have any on hand.
