Recipe by Tea Jenny

This was a recipe that I found in out Sunday supplement I've not made it yet but I think it would be nice for a leisurely lunch on a sunny day with a nice cold glass of wine. Posted for ZWT#6 2010

I made this a couple of days after Christmas and loved every bite of it but, somehow, totally forgot to review it. I made a half recipe and it came out a perfect 2 serving size. For the oliver I used the Linsey Brand jumbo blacks that were Christmas leftovers like the chicken was. The flavors all pair beautifully and the "tomatoes on the Vine" that I used were almost as good as summer's tomatoes. The dressing is wonderful and would be great on almost anything, I loved that it wasn't sweetened at all. This will be showing up again as a perfect summer dinner.
