Mock Chicken Salad?

In what world is veal cheaper than chicken?

Apparently in Betty Crocker’s mid-century world, that’s what.

Under the recipe for chicken salad (which hasn’t changed at all: cooked chicken, mayo, celery, salt and pepper and a bit of lemon juice), there is a recipe for “Mock Chicken Salad”.

A delicious and economical substitution for the real thing… when chicken is high and veal not so expensive. Follow “key” recipe above — except, in place of the chicken, use cut-up cooked veal.”

Shudder.
