  9. Instructions
  10. Prepare the mayonnaise: In a small bowl, mix the mayonnaise, chutney, lemon juice, and chives.
  11. Prepare the salad: In a large bowl, mix the turkey, currants, and grapes. Gently fold in the mayonnaise. In a small skillet over moderate heat, melt the butter. Saute the almonds until lightly golden, about 4 minutes, stirring often so they don't burn, and drain on paper towels. Toss the almonds into the turkey salad. Place the greens on a serving plate. Put the turkey salad in the center and fan the avocado slices around it.
