Smoked Chicken Salad with Baby Greens

  • SERVINGS: 4 TO 6
  • FAST

At his brand-new Honolulu restaurant, Chef Mavro, George Mavrothalassitis prepares this extraordinarily simple salad with smoked duck, which you can use here instead of the chicken.

  1. 1 pound medium asparagus, trimmed
  2. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  3. 1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
  4. 1 tablespoon minced shallots
  5. 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  6. 1/4 teaspoon five-spice powder
  7. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  8. 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  9. 8 cups (packed) mixed baby greens, such as frisée and lolla rosa
  10. 1 pound smoked chicken breast, skin removed, thinly sliced
  11. 4 plum tomatoes, quartered, or 8 cherry tomatoes, halved
  1. In a medium saucepan of boiling salted water, cook the asparagus until just tender, about 4 minutes. Drain, refresh under cold water and pat dry with paper towels. Cut the asparagus into 2-inch pieces.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, vinegar, shallots, mustard, five-spice powder, salt and pepper. In a large bowl, toss the mixed greens, sliced chicken, tomatoes and asparagus. Add the dressing, toss well and serve.

Suggested Pairing

A round, fruity California Chardonnay will complement the smoky chicken.
