Chicken Salad Verde Anna Teresa
Place chicken pieces in large bowl and set aside.
In food processor or blender, make dressing by combining parsley, basil, garlic, capers, pickle, celery, olive oil and vinegar. Puree until very smooth. (If dressing becomes too thick, add one tablespoon water.) Add salt and lemon juice.
Spoon dressing over chicken and toss gently to coat. Arrange lettuce leaves on large platter; mound salad in the middle.
Garnish with tomato slices or roasted red pepper slices, if desired.
Serve salad at room temperature. Serves 6
