  • Big Green Salad with Grilled Chicken and Roasted Potatoes
  • Serves 4
  • Ingredients

  • SALAD: 
    2 pounds Red potatoes
    3 tablespoons Extra-virgin olive oil
    Salt and pepper
    5 ounces Earthbound Farm Organic Spring Mix (1 clamshell package)
    6 Radishes (thinly sliced)
    2 Earthbound Farm Organic carrots (thinly sliced)
    1/4 head Red cabbage (thinly sliced)
    1 pound Applegate Grilled Chicken Breast Strips (2 8oz packages, heated if desired)
    1 Small shallot (minced)
    1/4 cup Extra-virgin olive oil
    3 tablespoons White wine vinegar
    2 tablespoons Finely diced dill pickle
    2 tablespoons Grainy mustard
    1 teaspoon Sugar
    Salt and pepper
  • Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 425°F. Cut each potato into 6 wedges and put into a mixing bowl. Drizzle with the olive oil and season well with salt and pepper. Roast, flipping potatoes halfway through, until golden brown and tender, 40-45 minutes.
  • While potatoes roast, make the dressing and assemble the salad.
  • To make the dressing, combine all the ingredients in a jar, seal tightly, and shake to combine.
  • For the salad, put the spring mix, radishes, carrots, and red cabbage in a large mixing bowl and toss gently to combine. When the potatoes are ready, transfer them to a large serving platter, then top with the salad. Arrange the grilled chicken over the salad. Give the dressing a shake, then drizzle it over the chicken, salad and potatoes.
