Plum Salad with Brown Rice, Chicken, Pecans and Mixed Herbs
1-2 fresh Chilean plums, sliced into wedges
1 cooked skinless/boneless chicken breast, shredded
2 cups cooked brown rice
¾ cup lightly toasted pecans
1 cup thinly sliced fennel bulb
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons sherry vinegar
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/3 cup chopped fresh tarragon leaves
2/3 cup chopped fresh flat leaf parsley
juice of one lemon
Place plums, shredded chicken, cooked brown rice, diced fennel, and toasted pecans in a serving bowl or platter.
Whisk together olive oil, vinegar, with a pinch of sea salt and a few grinds of pepper. Pour dressing over the salad and toss everything to coat. Add the fresh herbs and give everything another toss. Squeeze the juice of 1 lemon over the salad, and toss again. Season liberally with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
