CHICKEN SALAD. MRS. A. A. LUCAS.
Take two large chickens; boil tender; pick in small bits. Chop as
much celery as you have meat. For the dressing, take six yolks and
one whole egg; beat to a froth, mix with two spoonfuls of salad oil,
one spoonful mixed mustard, a little pepper and salt, one pint
vinegar, heated; before it boils, stir in the other ingredients; cook
till thick, stirring all the time. Boil down the liquid in which the
chickens were cooked until it forms a jelly. Let all cool. Two or
three hours before using, mix meat, celery, liquid, and dressing.
