In Korea, chef David Chang tasted a delicate, creamy pine nut sauce, made with only pine nuts, apricot nectar and chives. He immediately thought it would be a good substitute for mayonnaise. It's delicious in this chicken salad and would also be good in shrimp salad, lobster salad and egg salad, or used as a sandwich spread.    More David Chang Recipes  

How to Make It


In a blender, combine the pine nuts and apricot nectar and puree until smooth. Add 2 tablespoons of the chives and pulse just to incorporate. Transfer the sauce to a bowl and stir in the celery and chicken. Season with salt. Garnish with the sesame seeds and the remaining 1 tablespoon of chives and serve.
