Great flavours mingled with a tangy, creamy dressing make this a great hit at parties. I always get asked for this recipe.
Fresh garlic can be used instead of garlic powder.
My whole family enjoyed this, including my picky 14-year-old. I used low fat sour cream and mayo, omitted the black olives, added sliced green grapes and substituted farfalle pasta for the elbow macaroni. Delicious!

I loved this salad. I bought some curry powder at the store for this recipe and it brought back so many memories of my moms shrimp curry recipes. I really enjoyed it except I didn't use the olives or fruit. I also used light mayo and light sour cream. It was wonderful. - 07 Apr 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I had to make a few modifications since I didn't want to go to the store, but the dressing for this salad is amazing! I doubled the recipe, but only used about a 1/2 c. of sour cream and 1 1/2 c. of mayo with the garlic and curry. Instead of the apples, I put in about 6 diced piquante peppers for amazing color and flavor. Wasn't sure about the olives in this but they were great! Highly recommend this. - 10 Oct 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
