Domini’s luscious lemon pickle chicken and avocado salad

For many years, Tried and Supplied founder, Domini Hogg, has been an avid fan of a particular chicken and avocado mixed with lemon pickle. The tradition has been for it to be served for lunch on a couple of occasions on the run up to Christmas, and for the remaining pickle to appear in her Christmas stocking.

The recipe originally came from the Tracklements website. It could be achieved in a trice using Tracklements’ lemon pickle. Then disaster struck, and the company stopped making it. Nothing daunted though, I contacted Tracklements, and a wonderful lady in the customer service department there gave me the recipe, having scaled it down from the original cooking batches! We give the recipe in another post.

So now it’s not quite such a quick recipe as it was, but the pickle is easy to make, and you can make several jars at once and give the rest as presents.

Over years of enjoying this salad we’ve experimented with different types of carb to go with it. Crusty bread is fine. So too are savoury muffins. But the greatest success has been with puff pastry cheese straws. Go here for how to make those.

Here’s how to make it.
