It's new! It's scrumptious! It's what's for dinner---and lunch--and possibly, even, breakfast! Hot Salads!
Ingredients
  • 1 pound chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces and sprinkled with dried herbs
  • olive oil
  • lemon, cut up into wedges
  • 3 apples, cored and diced (leave skins on)
  • 3 large carrots, peeled and sliced
  • big handful of fresh flat-leaf parsley or your favorite herb crush of the week, chopped
  • cinnamon and salt
  • cucumber, sliced
  • any other fresh veg you like, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 pound fresh lettuces, bitter greens, baby greens, etc., washed and torn into bite-sized pieces
Instructions
  1. First prepare all the veg: wash and spin the greens, wash, peel and chop the fresh veg. Cut your lemon up into wedges. Set all aside.
  2. Then: saute your meat in a heavy skillet, with olive oil, stirring often to prevent sticking. When cooked through and a bit crusty on the edges, liberally salt and season with herbs and cover, keeping hot (we cover ours with foil and a soft dishtowel, and place into a warmed oven.)
  3. Next, using the same skillet, add another swish of olive oil and saute your chosen veg and/or fruit (in this case we used chopped carrots and apples, and then added just a whisper of cinnamon) until barely soft, then season.
  4. To serve: Make a nest of greens in the bottom of your bowl (use more than you think: it will smash down a bit with the heavier ingredients on top), add the fresh veg, the sizzlingly hot meat, and the hot sauteed veg. Add your seasonings on top--we sprinkle with dried herbs, freshly-ground salt, and chopped fresh herbs. Squeeze a lemon wedge on top of the whole thing, add a glug of extra-virgin olive oil, and you're good to go. Dig in. Dive in. Grin happily at the deliciousness. Share my post. All good things. ;)
