Shop for this week's Dinner in Minutes

No power? This chicken salad's stil doable. (Tracy A. Woodward/The Washington Post)

Okay. Maybe you're still without power, and you've already blown your dining-out budget for the month. This no-cook recipe's flexible and fairly inexpensive. Serve it on top of salad greens or with crackers. (If you do have electricity -- and yes, I'm referring to you, Neighbor With the Very Loud Generator I Covet -- you could also add some cooked, cooled pasta or serve this salad on toast.) If you don't have a cooler filled with ice, you may just have to eat all the salad. But there could be worse things to deal with than that.

The list below is just for shopping; to view the entire recipe, click on the recipe title.

LWV Chicken Salad
4 to 6 servings

Adapted from "Family Favorites: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow/Healthy Citizens in a Healthy Democracy," a new collection compiled by the League of Women Voters of Washington, D.C.

3 to 4 cooked boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (may substitute white meat from a rotisserie chicken)

1 whole pineapple (*actually, you only use half of it. So if you're without power, plan on eating the rest as an afternoon snack)

4 ribs celery

1 bunch scallions

1 cup seedless green grapes

1/2 cup sliced almonds, plus more for garnish

2 to 3 limes

1/3 cup chutney, such as Major Grey's

1/2 to 3/4 cup regular or low-fat mayonnaise (do not use nonfat)

1 teaspoon curry powder, or more as needed
