California Chicken Salad

“A great way to recycle leftover chicken into something new and wonderful. Turkey would work equally well in this creamy salad. Try this over mixed greens or on croissants for a wonderful lunch. From the Western chapter of the United States Regional Cookbook, Culinary Arts Institute of Chicago, 1947.”
