Fresh Coconut Cake - Judy Mayo
Served at the Summer Cookout 2008

1 box Duncan Hines Butter cake mix
1 stick real butter - melted
2/3 cup water
3 eggs

Filling
2 cups sugar
2 cups sour cream

Directions

Mix filling first and put in fridge.
Before you layer the cake reserve 1 cup of the filling mixture and mix it with 8 oz container of Cool Whip and return this to the fridge. This will be your icing.

Bake in 2 - 9" cake pans for 22 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Cooking time may vary.
cool completely. Split layers. You will have 4 layers now.
Layer the cake by placing filling mixture between each layer.
Ice the entire cake with the Cool Whip mixture. Top with the reserved 1/4 pkg coconut.

Martha's Chicken Salad

6 cups cooked skinless and boneless chicken that has been cut into good-size bites

( To cook chicken, place it in a large pot and cover with water. Add celery stalk with top, 1/2 of an onion,, salt and pepper to taste. Boil gently, covered, for approximately 20 minutes, or until cooked through. Remove the chicken, cool,and cut into bite-size pieces.)

1 to 2 Tbs olive oil
2 to 3 Tbs lemon juice
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 tsp finely cut  tarragon leaves, or 1/4 tsp dried tarragon
1 cup diced celery stalks
1/2 cup minced green onion
1 cup toasted slivered almonds
3/4 cup or more of mayonnaise

Toss the chicken in a big mixing bowl with the salt, pepper, and enough oil to very lightly coat the meat. Toss with the lemon juice, and finally with the herbs, celery, onions, and almonds. Let set 10 minutes, tossing several times.

 * Ahead-of-time note: May be completed a day in advance to this point; cover and refrigerate.

Final seasoning. Drain any accumulated liquid out of the salad, correct seasoning again, and fold in
just enough mayonnaise to coat the ingredients.
