Snap Pea and Radish Salad

This is from The Comfort Table

3/4 pound sugar snap peas

1 bunch radishes, trimmed

2 Tbs fresh chives or 1 Tbs dried chives


3 Tbs olive oil

1 Tbs cider vinegar

1 tsp honey

1 tsp kosher salt

1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper

Trim the peas, if needed, and then blanch the peas in a pot of boiling salted water for 2-3 minutes. Drain and immediately put the peas in a bowl of ice water to stop them cooking.

Trim the radishes and slice thinly or cut into wedges or do some of each.

Mix up the vinaigrette in a small jar, shaking until well blended, then pour over the peas and radishes and serve.

Harry loves chicken divan and I haven't made it for ages. Got a reminder from this week's Parade Magazine. Sounds good!

CHICKEN DIVAN (Sherry Shepherd in Parade Magazine)

1 large bunch broccoli, trimmed and cut into 4" long spears
1/2 stick unsalted butter, diced
5 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
2 c. chicken broth
1/2 c. well-chilled heavy cream
3 Tbsp. medium-dry sherry
Fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/2 c. freshly grated Parmesan cheese
2 whole boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 1-1/2 lb. total), cooked and sliced thin

In a large saucepan of boiling, salted water, cook broccoli for 6 to 8 minutes or until tender. Drain and set aside, covered.

In a heavy saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Add flour and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes. Add broth and bring mixture to a boil. Cook on low, stirring for 10 minutes or until thick.

In a mixing bowl, beat cream with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form, then add to flour mixture, along with sherry and lemon juice to taste. Season with salt and pepper.

Arrange broccoli in a flameproof 2-quart gratin dish or other shallow casserole dish. Top with half the sauce. Stir 1/4 c. Parmesan into the other half of sauce. Arrange chicken on broccoli, pour remaining sauce over top and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 c. Parmesan.

Broil, about 6" from heat for 1 minute or until sauce is golden and bubbling.
