Chicken Salad Ambrosia


As long as man has enjoyed sporting events, tailgating has been a part of it. Mostly associated today with football games and fall auto racing, “tailgating” goes back to the days of the Roman Coliseum and the jousting tournaments of the Middle Ages. Sports always seemed to spur the appetite.

Tailgate parties can be as elaborate as a picnic of pate, caviar and cheeses, or as simple as fried chicken, slaw and baked beans.

These two recipes, one is for salad, the other is enough to make several sandwiches, can be eaten with either bread or crackers.
