White Bean & Chicken Salad with Citrus Vinaigrette

I love the vibrancy of all the colors on this salad. They say we eat with your eyes. In that case, this is a feast!

This is my go-to salad when I need to use up some leftover chicken.

Directions

How To Make Your White Bean & Chicken Salad with Citrus Vinaigrette:

  1. Place a BBQ grill mat onto the grates of your grill, and heat your grill to 350-400°F (no more scrubbing grates clean afterwards).

  2. Place your microwaveable snow peas in their bag into the microwave, and cook according to the instructions on the packet.

  3. With a precise paring knife and wooden cutting board, finely mince your shallots.

  4. Cut the cherry tomatoes using a sharp chef’s knife.

  5. Cut, pit and slice the avocado with an avocado slicer

  6. Juice one of your oranges (you want around 3 tablespoons of juice). Peel and separate the remaining 2 oranges into segments.

  7. Slice the microwaved snow peas into 1 inch pieces.

  8. Heat a small skillet on medium heat and, once hot, add the sliced almonds. Move your almonds around constantly using a solid spatula and watch them like a hawk as they can easily burn! Once roasted, sprinkle over 1/2 teaspoon of the salt.

  9. Grill your chicken, covered, for 4-5 minutes on each side until done. Use a cooking thermometer to make sure you have cooked the chicken through to 165°F, the safe cooking temperature. Leave to rest and cool down.

  10. Place the cannellini beans into a colander and rinse well. Leave to drain.

  11. In a medium bowl, place the fresh orange juice, shallots, avocado, tomaotes, Dijon mustard, vinegar, honey, the remaining 1 teaspoon of salt, and the pepper. Whisk well using a small balloon whisk.

  12. Now, add the olive oil steadily, whilst whisking continuously, until combined.

  13. Chop up the chicken directly into your salad / presentation bowl using heavy duty kitchen shears (much easier than using a knife and cutting board).

  14. Add the cannellini beans, snow peas, orange segments and cabbage. Drizzle over the citrus vinaigrette and toss well.

  15. Sprinkle over the roasted almonds, and serve your salad with serving tongs.

Kimberly Jones said: My mom loves these meat claws

There very durable and cut right threw the meat highly recommended. My mom works with a church and I got them for her she use to use a knife which took her awhile to cut up 5 big pans of pork roast up she loves these claws she said it cut her prep time in half and it broke the pork up very easily she told me thank you and that she loved them. Thank you Chef Remi you made my mom's day.

C.D. said: Love them

I love these measuring spoons. There are plenty of sizes so I have one for all my needs. They are sturdy and I believe they will last a long long time. I ditched the ring that holds them together because it is not my thing but I know lots of people that like that.

Kathy said: FINALLY a knife holder that WORKS

I have been wanting a magnetic knife holder FOREVER it seems. However, family and friends that had purchased numerous magnetic knife holders NEVER gave good reviews considering they didn't do what they were suppose too. So I decided to give Chef Remi's magnetic holder a try and I must say, I am beyond satisfied. I absolutely adore it! It does exactly what it is suppose to do, was easy to mount on the wall and adds more organization to my kitchen. I will definitely be referring everyone I know to this product and will purchase again if I ever get more knives.
