Duo Salad with Poppy Dressing


This is the ultimate chicken salad. A neighbor of mine once said, “Some salads are ignored by all the men on the table and some salads are just perfect and the men can’t get enough.” This one was made for men (and the woman who don’t mind a really good salad).   If you don’t use or can’t find spinach, simply replace it with additional romaine lettuce.


Prepare the Pastrami

1. Preheat oven to 475 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Spread the pastrami slices on a baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes or until pastrami is toasted. Let cool and cut into strips.

Prepare the Chicken

1. Combine all marinade ingredients in a ziptop bag. Lightly pound the chicken and add to bag. Marinate for 20 minutes.
2. Discard marinade and add chicken to a preheated grill pan or skillet. Cook over medium heat, turning after three to four minutes or when chicken turns white. When it is cooked through, remove chicken from pan and cut into strips.

Prepare the Dressing

1. Combine sugar, onion, vinegar, mustard, and salt. Gradually blend in the oil. Stir in the poppy seeds.

To Serve

1. Toss salad ingredients together with the desired amount of dressing. There will be dressing left over.
