This is an old recipe. Not old to me -- I purchased a "favorite recipe's" binder at an estate sale and it was filled with paper clippings and handwritten (yep!) recipe cards, sepia and browned. I thought, "who wants their chicken salad hot?!" But something about the recipe caught my eye and we made it. The incredible RICHNESS of it is beyond compare. There's only two of us, but it didn't last to bedtime, we enjoyed it so much!
