    Taken from Julia Child's The Way to Cook. I think it would be delicious as a sandwich filling too.

      A cafe across the street from my work serves this on a cranberry ciabatta roll, now I know how to make it at home! I add a few extra walnuts and chop up some dried cranberries as well. Delicious!

      Old Norfolk Va. Recipe is a twist on Julia's recipe only BETTER! My Grandmother made the BEST "Chic-Sal" for her "Bridge Ladies". She would boil 2 chickens in lightly (sea) salted and peppered water; let it cool in the water for 1 hr. ("let the chicken bathe") skim off fat and save the broth for stock later; skin and debone breasts. (save the dark meat for soup with the saved stock) and cover in frig for 1 hr.+-; cut up chic in nice bite-sized chunks; add chopped celery (not too fine), sweet onion (not too much: "it is a spice- treat it that way"), walnuts, pinch of fresh basil , fresh ("is there any other") black pepper, lightly sea salt to taste, Helman's Mayo., dash of red wine vinegar,T. of orange marmalade (or apricot jam). Toss lightly- "you want it a 'tad-bit' dry" ( it becomes watery with the celery and mayo). Stuff it in a half ripe tomato, dash with paprika, and a sprig of parsley or water cress, and bed in cold, crisp iceberg lettuce with tangerine slices or watermelon pickle. "Ooooeeee, mmmm!"
