- 2 skinless chicken breasts
- 75 g green beans, trimmed
- 75 g asparagus spears
- 6 cherry tomatoes, halved
- 2 tablespoons pine nuts
- 4 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
- 1 cup baby salad leaves
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1 teaspoon cider vinegar
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- Place the chicken in small pan of cold water, bring to the boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 8 – 10 minutes. Remove from the pan and allow to cool slightly. Alternatively steam in a steamer.
- Steam the green beans and asparagus spears until tender but still crisp; refresh in cold water.
- Mix the beans and asparagus with all the other salad ingredients in a bowl except for the baby salad leaves.
- Place the dressing ingredients in a screw-top jar with 1 tablespoon of water and shake well.
- Slice the chicken while still warm and add to the salad. Pour over the dressing and toss to coat.
- Serve in a large salad bowl, garnished with the baby salad leaves.
Thank God, you have posted this recipe in here..I follow Gillian's plan and her website's server is down so there was no way to find the ingredients and how to make this recipe..and it tastes wonderfully..everyone should try that salad!!!
This is a very nice light lunch. I prepared this as written except for pan frying the chicken breasts in a nonstick pan and seasoning them with lemon pepper and salt. I also forgot to add the pine nuts. Thanks for this keeper.
