Recipe by Sage
This recipe is from Raising the Salad Bar; a wonderful book I received from the Cookbook Swap. Serve this great salad with some crusty bread and you have meal to remember.I would make this with cherry tomatoes because I am no a big fan of sun-dried tomatoes. To serve this as a vegetarian meal omit the chicken and serve with roasted vegetables.
- 1⁄2 cup sun-dried tomato
- 1 (14 ounce) can artichoke hearts
- 4 cooked chicken breasts, grilled if possible
- salt and pepper
- 1 roasted red pepper, cut in strips
- 1⁄2 cup pitted green olives, quartered
- 3 tablespoons minced parsley
- 4 cups baby greens, lettuce washed and dried
Dijon Herb Dressing
- 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
- 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
- 1⁄2 teaspoon minced garlic
- 6 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
