July 10, 1986

"Below is a recipe for my favorite Chicken-Pasta Salad," Martha Oberman writes. "It's delicious served with sliced tomatoes and topped with pureed avocado. Or you can surround it with alternate slices of tomato and avocado."


1 whole chicken breast, boned, cooked and sliced into strips

1/4 pound curly pasta, cooked

1 (6-ounce) jar marinated artichoke hearts, drained

1 teaspoon celery seeds

Sesame oil

1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted

2 tomatoes, sliced

1 avocado, peeled, halved and sliced

Combine chicken strips, pasta, artichoke hearts, capers, celery seeds, olives and green onions. Toss salad with Dressing. Add drops of sesame oil to taste. Chill well. When ready to serve, scatter toasted sliced almonds on top. Serve on platter surrounded alternately with sliced tomatoes and avocado. Makes 6 servings.


2 tablespoons sugar

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1/4 teaspoon oil
