Ingredients

  • 10 cherry, yellow pear-shape or grape tomatoes
  • 1 small bunch asparagus , about 250 g
  • 1 medium head romaine lettuce
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 slices prosciutto
  • 500 g chicken stir-fry strips , or boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
  • 1/4 cup vinaigrette-style Caesar salad dressing
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • topping of shaved parmesan

Instructions

  • Slice tomatoes in half. Snap off and discard tough ends of asparagus, then slice spears into bite-size pieces. Set aside. Wash romaine and tear into bite-size pieces. You should have about 3 cups (750 mL). Combine in a salad bowl with spinach.
  • Heat oil in a large frying pan set over high heat. Add prosciutto and cook until crisp, from 1 to 2 minutes per side. Remove prosciutto and drain on paper towels. Add tomatoes to hot fat in pan and stir-fry over high heat for 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside in a bowl. Add chicken to pan and stir-fry until lightly browned, from 2 to 3 minutes. Add to tomatoes.
  • Reduce heat to medium-low, add asparagus and cook, covered, until just tender, from 3 to 5 minutes. Then toss dressing with romaine and spinach. Add asparagus and pan juices, tomatoes and chicken and toss. Serve sprinkled with broken pieces of prosciutto, pepper and Parmesan.
