I was able to get my husband (who at the time had no interest in our kids) to do the same thing. Another thing about this chicken salad cafe (apart from the outsized portion of it on a sandwhich) is that every time I got my chicken salad to go, the sandwich artist always smiled with a happy "cheese-bacon" face, so we knew it was fair food.
So upon meeting my husband after work at our (then-new) farm after he and I became involved, I told him I wished I were going to the "Chicken Salad Cafe" every day. I told him I loved their food, which is sustainable, seasonal and local. I told him that I wanted him to know about the food that I love--and I told him that I love their chicken salad.
Since then, I have often made some of their chicken salad at home. This chicken salad recipe (which also includes a chicken pot pie) is my most recent rendition. It's an adaptation of what I remember their chicken salad sandwich looking like to get the most of the flavors.
This chicken salad recipe is made in a lasagna pan, and it is made without mayo because I did not have the mayonnaise ready. I also used a great topping that I call "ladyfinger crumbs," and the potato chips which I made in the same directions as the potatoes in the chicken pot pie. d2c66b5586
