This classic salad is great for any time of the year.


  1. Grate peel from lemon; squeeze juice into small bowl. Stir in mayonnaise, 1/4 cup cheese, and garlic until smooth. Set aside.

  2. Mix spices in shallow dish. Coat chicken fillets or tenders with spice mixture. Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat.

  3. Sauté chicken 3 to 4 minutes per side or until no longer pink in center. Cook to internal temp of 165°F. If using chicken fillets, thinly slice across the grain into strips.

  4. Arrange lettuce on salad plate or shallow bowls. Top with chicken, avocado, and croutons. Drizzle with dressing and sprinkle with 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese and black pepper.

Nutritional values may change if you choose to substitute another chicken product. If substituting frozen chicken for this recipe, thaw before cooking. If substituting fresh whole boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut the whole breast in half before preparing.


For an even more authentic flavor, add a few drops of Worcestershire sauce or a small spoonful of anchovy paste to the dressing. You can buy handmade croutons in a good bakery or make your own in minutes. Just toss torn pieces of rustic bread with olive oil or melted better and lots of chopped garlic. Toast in the oven on a baking sheet until golden brown and crisp.
