Oscar's Chicken Salad
(First star is lowest, fourth star is highest)
From the menu of . . . Oscar's
NOTE: This restaurant is no longer open.
Q: Everything on the menu at Oscar's in College Park is truly Oscar-worthy. I really enjoy the chicken salad on the lunch menu and think that it is something that I could possibly make at home.
-- Patty Crenshaw, College Park
A: White truffle oil gives this dish its unique flavor. It imparts a slightly musky, woodsy flavor that is complemented by pancetta (Italian bacon), which provides just a hint of smokiness.
