12 Best Foods Cookbook by Dana Jacobi

Fennel and toasted nuts give a new twist to this salad with creamy dressing. Instead of waiting for leftovers from a roast chicken, you can make it using a barbecued breast from the store.
Wild fennel bulbs are long and slim. You can find them at an increasing number of supermarkets as well as farmers' markets, particularly during the summer and fall. They should be thinly sliced, as they are crunchier (some would say tougher) than the bulbous fennel we are used to. They also have a more pronounced anise flavor.

Makes 4 servings

• 2/3 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
• 2 cups diced roast chicken breast (8 ounces)
• 1 Granny  Smith apple, peeled, cored, and cut in3/4" cubes
• 2 wild fennel bulbs, or 1/4 medium fennel bulb, chopped
• 6 cups shredded red leaf, romaine, or Boston lettuce, or any combination

• 2 tablespoons low-fat whipped dressing
• Juice of 1 lemon
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
• Pinch of cayenne pepper

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spread the nuts in 1 layer on a baking sheet. Toast until they are fragrant and lightly colored, 10 minutes, stirring after 3 minutes and again after 6 minutes so they toast evenly. Set the nuts aside to cool.

2. In a mixing bowl, combine the chicken, apple, fennel, and nuts.

3. For the dressing, in a small bowl, whisk together the whipped dressing, lemon  juice, salt, black pepper, and red pepper, adjusting the seasoning to taste. Pour the dressing over the chicken mixture, tossing until the salad is evenly coated.

4. To serve, divide the lettuce among 4 dinner plates and mound the chicken salad equally over the greens.
