Mediterranean Chicken Salad from the original Silver Palette Cookbook.
It is a wonderful, easy recipe and can be made the day before and the green beans added at the last minute. I didn't have beans, so I used asparagus -just as good. I was too lazy to get up, go into the kitchen, scan in the recipe for you - so I googled it. Found various bastardized recipes claiming to be this: one added some raspberry icky stuff (an updated Silver Palette recipe - bleh); another left out the imported black olives. But I found the original on line.
In about 1980, Marty and I were on the Upper West Side and the Silver Palette had a hole-in-the-wall store run by Sheila Lukins (who, sadly, died last year) and Julie Rosso. We went in and bought some of this chicken salad and something else and I only remember that this stuff cost $8 a pound, which 30 years ago, was a fortune. But Marty bought it (we weren't married yet - LOL). Then, I bought the cookbook and made it myself, after that first time. Haven't made it for years - I often make the tarragon chicken salad -- but this was a treat. And I got two quarts of chicken soup out of the deal.
Actually got some work done tonight, which is hard to believe if you look at the horizontal spaces. Ms. Closet, I am afraid that even YOU would give up trying to organize this mess. I just shove it all aside and clear about 18" square to work in. Actualy, I was working on the computer tonight so this mess didn't really bother me.
A couple of weeks ago I received my SQUARE in the mail, which is a gizmo that allows you to take credit cards on your iPhone (or probably a Droid, as well). You plug the little thing into the headphone jack on your phone and it becomes a credit card terminal. Cute, huh?
It has been a long day and tomorrow, the studio! I have scarves to print and things to do.
