From Chatelaine's September 2011 issue of gluten-free cooking. A quick, delicious, healthy meal.
- 1 carrot
- 2 romaine lettuce hearts, leaves separated
- 2 celery ribs, thinly sliced
- 3⁄4 cup milk
- 1⁄3 cup light mayonnaise
- 2 tablespoons fresh dill, snipped
- 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 3 tablespoons louisiana hot sauce
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons honey
- 4 chicken breasts, boneless, skinless
- 1⁄3 cup blue cheese, crumbled
- Preheat barbecue to medium. Peel long ribbons from carrot into a large bowl, turning as you go. Add lettuce leaves and celery. Whisk milk with mayo, dill, vinegar, and garlic in a small bowl. Stir hot sauce with butter and honey in a large bowl. Set both aside.
- Oil grill, then barbecue chicken, covered, until springy when pressed, six to eight minutes per side. Transfer to a cutting board and slice into 1/2 – inch thick strips. Add to hot-sauce mixture and turn to coat. Drizzle dressing over salad and toss until coated. Top with chicken and cheese.
- I didn’t happen to have romaine, so I used iceberg. Also, no blue cheese, so feta was substituted. We like things hot, so I didn’t put the butter or honey in the hot sauce. I used Frank’s Red Hot, right out of the bottle.
A chicken in every salad...I heard that somewhere before. BTW, did you know chicks don't date geese. What am I saying, I dated a goose once! Made for PAC Fall 2011.
I tried this as you suggested, with feta and pure hot sauce, and loved it! It's a great meal for those hot summer days you just can't bare to have the oven, or even stove on. I would be interested in a purely hot sauce based dressing, if there is one out there.
