1 egg
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 fresh lemon, halved
1 teaspoon chopped garlic
1/4 cup packed mint leaves, chopped
1 to 1 1/4 cups olive oil
Freshly ground white pepper
1 whole chicken (about 4 pounds) boiled, bones removed and the meat small diced
1 cup small diced red onions
1/2 cup small diced celery
1/2 cup toasted pine nuts
1 cup sultans or currents, soaked in 1/2 cup Marsala

In a blender, combine the egg, mustard, lemon juice, garlic, and mint leaves. Blend until smooth. With the machine running, slowly drizzle in the oil, until the mixture is thick. Season with salt and pepper.

In a mixing bowl, combine the chicken, onions, celery, nuts and sultans. Mix thoroughly. Add the emulsion and mix until incorporated. Season with salt and pepper. Serve the salad with the arugula.
