Chicken & Asparagus with Tarragon Dressing on Spring Greens
This spring-inspired chicken salad features fresh asparagus, new baby potatoes, bright salad greens, and a creamy tarragon and chive dressing.
3/4 cup low-fat mayonnaise
3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
3 tablespoons snipped chives
3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh tarragon or 1 tablespoon dried tarragon leaves
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon salt
4 (2-inch) small red potatoes, cut into 1/4-inch slices
3/4 pound (about 2 cups) asparagus, cut into 2-inch pieces
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound Gold'n Plump® Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast Tenders
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
8 cups spring salad greens
1 cup grape tomatoes, cut in half
1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted
To make dressing, stir together all dressing ingredients in small bowl. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour or up to 3 days.
To make the salad, fill a medium saucepan half full with cold water. Add 1 teaspoon salt and potatoes. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to simmer. Cook, uncovered, 15 minutes or until just tender. Remove potatoes from water with slotted spoon. Chill.
Cook asparagus in the same simmering water 5 to 6 minutes or until just tender. Drain and chill.
Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken tenders; sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper. Cook about 10 minutes or until lightly browned and thoroughly cooked. Chill.
When ready to serve, arrange 2 cups of salad greens on each of 4 large plates. Top with 1/4th of potatoes, asparagus, chicken, and tomatoes. Drizzle with dressing. Sprinkle with toasted pine nuts.
To toast pine nuts, use a small skillet over medium heat for about 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
