Recipe

Most grown-ups, too, would be ecstatic to be given Ritzy Chicken Nuggets for supper or lunch. When I eat them, this is the salad I make to go with.

Yield: Serves 4-6

Ingredients

For the salad:

  • 4 little butter lettuces
  • 2 large gherkins to give approx. 7 tablespoons diced
  • 1-2 tablespoons capers
  • 2-3 tablespoons chopped parsley

For the dressing:

  • 2 teaspoons gherkin brine
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon Dijon mustard

Directions

and eat 2 nuggets each or make more

Slice the lettuce into ½ inch slices across the lettuce and put into a bowl. Dice the gherkins and add to the lettuce with the capers.

Combine the dressing ingredients, whisking together, and then pour over the salad, tossing it to mix. Arrange on a couple of plates and sprinkle over the parsley. And then just bring on the nuggets.
