Recipe Steps

You Will Need

  • Olive Oil

  • Step 1 - Prepare the Ingredients
    1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Bring a medium pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Place a colander in the sink. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and prepare a baking sheet with foil or use a nonstick baking sheet. Throughly rinse produce and pat dry. Slice one cucumber into thin rounds and grate other cucumber. Squeeze water from grated cucumber and place in a mixing bowl. Slice tomato lengthwise and then into thin semi-circles. Remove leaves of bibb lettuce from core, leaving them whole. Quarter lemon. Mince dill, leaving a few fronds for garnish (thin dill stems are tender and can be minced along with the fronds- no need to stem). Peel and mince shallot. Stem green beans. Rinse chicken and pat dry.
