With its bright color, pronounced curry flavor, and interesting textures, this recipe is particularly good as a small appetizer salad. It would also make a fine sandwich filling. The recipe makes 1 pound 5 ounces of finished salad. It is a little involved, but parts, and in fact the whole salad, can be made ahead.
