This week's Culinary SOS: Chicken salad from the Curious Palate

Chicken salad from the Curious Palate
This week's Culinary SOS comes to us from Courtney Lockwood in Santa Monica:

A relatively new cafe in Mar Vista, the Curious Palate, makes a wonderful chicken salad with almonds, dried cranberries, scallions and Rocky Jr. chicken. It is the best chicken salad I have ever eaten. Is it possible to obtain the recipe?

Rich, roast chicken is shredded and tossed with creamy aioli and fresh pesto, the salad combined with roasted tomatoes and sliced green onions, then garnished with a sprinkling of toasted almonds and dried cranberries. Great as a light meal, it also makes a perfect side dish.
