1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. black pepper

4 cloves garlic

3 lemons, juiced

2 tbsp. mayonnaise

1 tbsp. Dijon mustard

1/4 cup olive oil

4 cups shredded romaine lettuce

2 cups green beans, cooked tender-crisp

2 cups baby red potatoes, cooked and halved

1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

1/2 cup Kalamata olives

Step 1


Heat a lightly greased grill or grill pan to medium high heat. Season the chicken breasts with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper. Grill the chicken breasts 3 to 4 minutes on each side. While grilling, baste the chicken with the juice of one of the lemons. Chicken is done when it feels firm to the touch and a meat thermometer inserted in the center reaches 170°F. Remove the chicken from the grill and let rest for 5 minutes, then slice into strips.

Step 2


On a cutting board, mash garlic cloves with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt to make a paste. In a bowl, whisk together the garlic, the juice of the remaining 2 lemons, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, and remaining 1/8 teaspoon black pepper. While whisking, drizzle in the olive oil and set aside.

Step 3


Lay shredded romaine on a large platter. Toss both green beans and red potatoes in 2 tablespoons of salad dressing and arrange over romaine. Arrange cherry tomatoes and Kalamata olives on the platter.

Step 4


Top salad with slices of cooked chicken breast. Finish with a drizzle of the remaining salad dressing and serve.
