Cook Time43 Minutes
Ingredients
1/3 cup grapeseed oil
6 cloves garlic, very thinly sliced
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
3/4 tsp Kosher salt, divided
3/4 tsp ground black pepper, divided
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 Tbsp rice vinegar
2 Tbsp honey
Pinch cayenne
3 cups chopped romaine lettuce
2 cups chopped radicchio
2 cups chopped green cabbage
2 cups halved red or green California grapes
1 cup thinly sliced celery
1/4 cup roughly chopped mint
Directions
  1. Heat oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and cook until crisp, removing pieces as they brown with a slotted spoon, about 2 minutes. Pour oil into a heatproof cup or bowl.

  3. Whisk lemon juice, vinegar, and honey into the remaining garlic oil. Season with 1/4 teaspoon each kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper and a pinch of cayenne.
  4. Combine the romaine, radicchio, cabbage, grapes, celery, and mint in a large bowl. Chop the chicken and add to the bowl along with the dressing. Toss to mix and serve sprinkled with the crispy garlic.
