- 3-4 scallions (chopped)
- handful of basil leaves
- 1 tblsp rice vinegar

- The absolutely best way is to roast a whole chicken with lots of garlic cloves, a few sprigs of rosemary, lemon wedges stuffed into the cavity and seasoned with salt, black pepper and cayenne pepper.
- Cook until the juices run clear.
- Then an hour or two later, take the meat off the bone and make the salad.
- If you haven't time to roast a chicken then you can just grill a few chicken breasts, slice them up and make the salad.
- For the Dressing:
- Put all the dressing ingredients in the processor, give it a quick whiz and taste for seasoning.
- Coat the salad leaves in a little of the dressing, arrange the leaves on individual plates or in one large bowl.
