Yes, it is easy to do. Since silver chloride is insoluble in water, chloride added to a solution containing ionic silver will cause the white compound to precipitate out immediately.  It will settle out onto the bottom of the container overnight, or can be filtered out.

Has anyone heard of precipitating silver out of a solution by adding table salt? 
I read this somewhere as a means of disposing of silver easily. Any info would 
be appreciated.
