Warm Winter Salad

From: EatingWell

Sauteed radicchio, fennel and carrots are topped with chicken, walnuts and Gorgonzola in this warm and hearty main-dish salad. Serve with crusty whole-grain baguette.

Servings: 4 servings, about 2 1/4 cups each
Prep: 35 mins
Total: 35 mins
Rated : 
 by 1 person
2 tablespoons  extra-virgin olive oil
2   pears, sliced
2   small shallots, minced
6 tablespoons  sherry vinegar
4 teaspoons  Dijon mustard
3 cups  shredded cooked turkey, or chicken (12 ounces; see Tip)
1 large head  radicchio, thinly sliced
1   large fennel bulb, cored and thinly sliced
2   large carrots, cut into matchsticks
2 tablespoons  chopped walnuts, toasted (see Tip)
1/4 teaspoon  salt
1/4 teaspoon  freshly ground pepper
12   large butterhead or Boston lettuce leaves
1/2 cup  crumbled Gorgonzola, or goat cheese
1. Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add pears and cook, stirring occasionally, until they start to brown, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a bowl with a slotted spoon.
2. Whisk shallots, vinegar and mustard in a small bowl; add to the pan and cook, stirring constantly, for 30 seconds. Add turkey (or chicken), radicchio, fennel, carrots and walnuts. Cook, stirring occasionally, until just wilted, about 3 minutes. Return the pears to the pan and season with salt and pepper.
3. Divide lettuce leaves among 4 plates. Top with the warm salad and sprinkle with cheese. Serves 2 Variation: Halve the ingredients and prepare the recipe in a large nonstick skillet instead of a Dutch oven.
Tips: To poach chicken breasts, place boneless, skinless chicken breasts in a medium skillet or saucepan. Add lightly salted water to cover and 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.
Place chopped walnuts in a small dry skillet and cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant and lightly browned, 2 to 4 minutes.
