    realbirdlady's Note:

    Causa is a cold, layered, potato salad from Peru. While it is just as tasty no matter how it is arranged on the plate, traditional causa's colorful layers lend themselves to spectacular presentation. This is a simplified chicken causa from the University of Illinois Extension Service.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Mash the potatoes. Allow potatoes to cool until they are comfortable to handle.
    2. 2
      Mix the potatoes with the peppers, salt and juice from half a lemon. Knead until it forms a smooth paste. If the potatoes don’t stick together well, add a trickle of vegetable oil and continue kneading until it sticks.
    3. 3
      In a separate container, season the onion with salt and juice from half a lemon.
    4. 4
      In another container, shred the chicken and mix it with half the mayonnaise.
    5. 5
      Separate the potato and chili mixture into portions. For a simple presentation, form into a flat mound on a salad plate. For a more elaborate causa, use a round metal spring mold (or a soup can with both ends cut out).
    6. 6
      Cover with a layer of the onion mixture.
    7. 7
      Cover with a layer of the the chicken.
    8. 8
      (For simple presentation, use one layer of each component. For elaborate presentation, use multiple thinner layers, ending with potato on the top.).
    9. 9
      Chill before serving. Garnish with the rest of the mayonnaise, lettuce, olives or parsley.
