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.
