Orange Chicken Caesar Salad

This was delicious! I wanted a salad, Per didn't - so we bought half a grilled chicken and divided it. I used mine in a Caesar Salad, he.. did something else, I can't remember what.

I wanted a different type of Caesar, so I played around a bit with flavors. Instead of adding lemon juice to the dressing, I added orange juice, and orange segments to the salad. I also added fresh grated ginger, to give it a bit more heat. Deee-lish! I skipped croutons this time, and went for some crunchy red onion instead.

Orange Chicken Caesar Salad
Serves 1

cold chicken, shredded
1/2 red onion, in thin half moons
romaine lettuce
1 orange
egg yolk
3-4 tbsp olive oil
1 minced garlic clove
fresh grated ginger, about 2 tsp
1 anchovy fillet
handful of shredded parmesan

Put the egg yolk in a small bowl. Add the olive oil, drop by drop, and blend with an immersion blender. Add the garlic, ginger, anchovy and blitz again. Add half of the parmesan.

Toss the lettuce with the dressing, the onion, the chicken and the rest of the parmesan. Cut out segments of the orange, and squeeze out the juice over the salad. Top with more parmesan if you want to.
