This salad is simply amazing. A staple in my home. Swap out ground chicken for ground turkey, or flaked wild salmon.

Ingredients
  • 1lb of organic ground chicken, cooked
  • 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 shallot, chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon of pink salt
  • ½ a head of fresh romaine shredded and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons of red onion, chopped
  • 2-3 tablespoons of capers (optional)
  • For the vinaigrette:
  • 5 flat anchovy fillets, finely chopped or 1 tablespoon anchovy paste
  • 2 small garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon white-wine vinegar
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
Instructions
  1. Whisk or blend together anchovies, garlic, lemon juice, vinegar, and ⅛ teaspoon pepper. Whisk in oil. Set aside.
  2. Heat oil over medium heat and cook shallot until soft. Add garlic and Dijon and cook for about 1 more minute. Add ground chicken and add salt and pepper to taste. Cook chicken until all the moisture absorbs. Turn heat off and transfer to a separate dish to cool. Chop romaine, onion, and loosely chop capers. Toss with vinaigrette and then combine with ground chicken.
