(From Diana Rattray, Southern U.S. Cuisine)


 1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened

 1/4 c. mayonnaise

 2 tbsp. lemon juice

 1/2 tsp. salt

 1/4 tsp. ground ginger

 1/8 tsp. pepper

 4 drops red pepper sauce

 2 c. finely cut up cooked chicken

 2 hard boiled eggs, chopped

 1/4 c. sliced green onions (2-3 med.)

 3 green pepper rings

 1 tbsp. sesame seed

 3 tbsp. chopped green onion

 3 tbsp. chopped pimento, drained

 Crackers & bread rounds


 Mix cheese, mayonnaise, lemon juice, salt, ginger, pepper and pepper sauce.

Stir in chicken, eggs and 1/4 cup onions.

Shape into log, 8 x 3 inches, wrap in plastic wrap; refrigerate until firm (4 hours).

Cut green pepper rings to make strips, place strips across log, dividing log into thirds.

Sprinkle sesame seed on 1 section.

Repeat with onions and pimento on remaining sections.

Serve with crackers.

Sandy's Note: This would be a fun recipe to experiment with. Anyway you "slice it", it sounds fabulous! Thanks, Diana!
