Curried Chicken Salad

I had this left over chicken in the refrigerator and it had lost its interest among my household's eaters (me included) so I took the meat off the bone, chopped it up and made a curried chicken salad. Good for this hot weather.
The thing about curry is it can be hundred different ways depending on which spices you use and how you balance it. This is how I did it.

After chopping the chicken I chopped a bunch of celery (one of the hearts sold in stores as opposed to a long bunch of whole celery). Mixed the two together and added a half a cup of Mayonaise. This is the base for any chicken salad.

Then I started adding a little of this and a little of that.
3 or more tablespoons of Tumeric,
1-2 tablespoons of Cumin,
1 teaspoon of Cardamom,
a sprinkle of Garam Masala I happened to have,
Salt and Pepper

What the salad really needed were some golden raisins but I didn't have any, so I used dried peaches, and chopped them into raisin sized bits and added.
