Ingredients:
  • 2 pounds chicken breasts
  • ¾ lb Boston or bibb lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces
  • 2 cups thinly sliced red cabbage
  • 3 medium celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 cup cauliflower florets
  • 8 button mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/3 medium cucumber, sliced
  • ½ cup chopped zucchini or yellow squash
  • 10 cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 6 hard-boiled eggs, coarsely chopped
  • 2/3 cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 ½ teaspoons fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 ounces Irish or other blue cheese, crumbled
Directions:
1.    Preheat a grill.  Season chicken with salt and freshly ground black pepper.  Grill until it is no longer pink and the juices run clear; about 10 minutes turning once.  Set aside and then cut into slices.
2.    Make salad: in a large bowl, toss together lettuce, cabbage, chopped celery, cauliflower, sliced mushrooms, chopped cucumber, chopped zucchini, tomatoes and diced eggs.
3.    Make dressing: in a medium bowl, combine mayonnaise, heavy cream, water, rosemary, tarragon, ¼ teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper. Whisk until well blended, then stir in cheese.
4.    Just before serving, pour dressing over salad, and toss well.  Top with slice grilled chicken.
