Curried Chicken Salad

Our home in Upstate NY was located in an historic hamlet on the shore of Lake Ontario called Pultneyville. The hamlet was originally laid out in 1806 and is listed with the National Register of Historic Places. At one time a significant Great Lakes trading port and site of a War of 1812 skirmish, it now is a quiet, Western New York bedroom community. Set between the fruit orchards and a Great Lake on the Seaway Trail, many of Pultneyville’s activities focus on summer sailing and theatre. The hamlet boasts an active marina and is home to the second-oldest little theater in the United States.
