Fast & Easy Dinner: Warm Winter Salad

Fast & Easy Dinner: Warm Winter Salad

Jam-packed with crisp vegetables and poached chicken, this salad is a healthy, filling meal in itself. The dressing calls for sherry vinegar, but if you don't have it in your pantry simply use white wine vinegar.

To toast the walnuts, cook in a small skillet over medium-low heat until they are fragrant and lightly browned.

Warm Winter Salad


  1. 8 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breast, trimmed of fat
  2. 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  3. 1 pear, sliced
  4. 1 small shallot, minced
  5. 3 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  6. 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  7. 1 small head radicchio, thinly sliced
  8. 1 small fennel bulb, cored and thinly sliced
  9. 1 large carrot, cut into matchsticks
  10. 1 tablespoon chopped walnuts, toasted
  11. 1/8 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  12. 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, or to taste
  13. 6 large butter lettuce leaves
  14. 1/4 cup crumbled Gorgonzola or goat cheese


  1. Place boneless, skinless chicken breasts in a medium skillet or saucepan and add lightly salted water to cover; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer gently until chicken is cooked through and no longer pink in the middle, 10 to 12 minutes. Use 2 forks to shred into bite-size pieces.
  2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add pears and cook, stirring occasionally, until they start to brown, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl.
  3. Whisk shallot, vinegar and mustard in a small bowl; add to the pan and cook, stirring constantly, for 30 seconds.
  4. Add the cooked chicken, radicchio, fennel, carrot and walnuts. Cook, stirring occasionally, until just wilted, about 3 minutes. Return the pears to the pan. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Divide lettuce leaves between 2 plates. Top with the warm chicken salad and sprinkle with cheese.

Serves 2.
