This recipe was the creation of one of our early sous-chefs, Camille Convy, and I think it is a great example of East-Westism. It is also delicious (not always the case when East and West meet), absolutely beautiful, and very easy to do in spite of a plethora of ingredients. If you have someone to impress, this very upscale chicken salad is an ideal candidate.
All the preparations may be done a day in advance. Toss the salad together at the last minute.
