Persian Chicken Salad
Traditionally, Persian salads are decked with a variety of fresh herbs, such as mint, basil, and parsley. You may want to add some sprigs to garnish this version; the leaves can be eaten right along with the salad. Hot pita is an ideal accompaniment.

1 1/2 pounds new potatoes, cut into quarters (about six)
3 tablespoons olive oil
1-1/3 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, (about 4)
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/4 cup lime juice, from about 2 limes
4 carrots, grated
2 cucumbers, peeled, halved lengthwise, seeded, and cut into 1/4-inch dice
2 ribs celery, cut into 1/4-inch dice
1 cup frozen petite peas, thawed
1 red onion, chopped fine
1/2 cup Kalamata olives, halved and pitted
1/3 cup flat leaf parsley, chopped
1/2 cup fresh basil, or parsley, chopped




Put the potatoes in a medium saucepan of salted water. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer until just tender, about 12 minutes. Drain the potatoes and let cool.

In a large nonstick frying pan, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over moderate heat. Season the chicken with 1/4 teaspoon each of the salt and pepper. Cook the breasts until browned and just done, about 5 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the pan and let it cool. Cut into 1/2-inch chunks.

In a large glass or stainless-steel bowl, whisk together the yogurt, mayonnaise, mustard, lime juice, and the remaining 1 1/4 teaspoons salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add the potatoes, chicken, carrots, cucumbers, celery, peas, onion, olives, parsley, and basil and toss.


Wine Recommendation: Pouilly-Fume is a can’t-miss partner for fresh herbs and vegetables. Made from sauvignon blanc in France’s Loire Valley, Pouilly-Fume has penetrating herbal flavors of its own.

Try this delicious and substantial salad. It calls for the thick-sliced smoked chicken, but you can also use smoked turkey from the deli counter instead.
