Katz's Chopped Liver New York City's Katz's chopped liver, made with both chicken and beef livers, gains its silky texture from the addition of schmaltz. See the recipe for Katz's Chopped Liver » Back to Salad Days »Michael Kraus

This famous liver spread, enriched with schmaltz (rendered chicken fat), is a staple at Katz's Delicatessan, on New York City's Lower East Side. It's best served plain, as it is at Katz's, on rye bread. This recipe first appeared in our April 2011 special Sandwich Issue with the article Salad Days.
