A note about serious food allergies

“Cry 'havoc!', and let slip the salads of war.” Is that not what Shakespeare wrote in Julius Caesar? Well, he should have, and would have, had he tasted our mix of tangy dressing, crunchy lettuce, succulent chicken, and, a twist, ditalini pasta. This is a salad worth quoting Willy Shakes over.

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Halve baguette and cut into 3/4" cubes.

    Mince garlic.

    Hold romaine heart at root end and chop coarsely.

    Halve tomato lengthwise and slice halves into half-moons.

    Pat chicken breasts dry, and season both sides with a pinch of salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper.

  2. 2

    Cook the Pasta

    Add pasta to boiling water and stir occasionally until tender, 11-13 minutes.

    Drain pasta in a colander, running under cold water to cool. Set aside.

    While pasta cooks, cook chicken.

  3. 3

    Cook the Chicken

    Heat 1 tsp. olive oil in a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat.

    Add chicken to hot pan and cook until well-browned and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes per side.

    Remove chicken to a cutting board. Rest at least 5 minutes, then cut into 1/2" slices.

    While chicken rests, bake croutons.

  4. 4

    Make the Croutons

    Place baguette cubes on prepared baking sheet and toss with 1 tsp. olive oil. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.

    Spread into a single layer. Bake until golden brown, 10-12 minutes.

    Sprinkle baked croutons with a pinch of Parmesan (reserve remaining for dressing and garnish).

  5. 5

    Make Salad and Finish Dish

    In a mixing bowl, combine mayonnaise, garlic, white wine vinegar, half the remaining Parmesan (reserve remaining for garnish), 2 Tbsp. water, and a pinch of pepper. If dressing is too thick, add additional water until desired consistency is reached.

    Add romaine, tomato, croutons, and cooked pasta to dressing and combine. Alternatively, serve dressing on side to control amount.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, garnishing with remaining Parmesan. Bon appétit!
