Author Notes

This was inspired by a take-out deli in Manhattan near my old office. Our whole staff would start ordering this chicken salad whenever the store had it because it was just the best thing on their menu.
I never asked what was in it or how they made it but I think my version is a close approximation. —blanka.n
