It's hard to admit, but the most popular dish in all of Los Angeles might be the humble, unsung chicken salad. It's probably a credit to the enduring "health" benefits of chomping on a salad for lunch in a city that cares more about vanity sometimes than anything else. Restaurants know that having a great chicken salad is the key to having a steady lunch crowd. There are even chains who basically make their living on chicken salads. So, the question for this week's Open Thread is, who makes the best chicken salad in Los Angeles? Submit entries in the comments below or on the tipline, and the results will be compiled into a map in the next week or so.
