Defne Koryürek

Circassian Chicken Salad
Rating: Unrated
This traditional Turkish chicken salad in a light, creamy walnut-and-garlic sauce supposedly got its name because its color resembles the pale complexions of the Circassian beauties in the sultan's harem during the Ottoman Empire. Defne Koryürek serves her version here with a refreshing salad of baby arugula and roasted beets in a vinegary dressing. More Salads with Meat
