“MFA Chicken Salad” with Dried Cranberries and Red Onion

Beyond the art, one of the lures to the Boston MFA is lunch in the cafe and their signature chicken salad rollup. It’s not just plain old chicken salad. It’s got a garlicky sweet tarragon aioli that melds the sweet and sharp ingredients – dried cranberries, red onion and celery.
