This chicken salad is quick-to-fix.
Dear SOS: I love the chicken salad from Lunch in Culver City, Calif. It’s so delicious, and I always want it when I’m at home. Please help! — Laura
Dear Laura: Lunch’s chicken salad is a deliciously simple dish. It combines diced chicken with a little red onion, celery, currants and apple for a nice crunch, great color and a wonderfully fresh combination of flavors not unlike a classic Waldorf. And it’s just as easy to prepare. Enjoy!
