Notes about this recipe

    This truly is unexpectedly delicious and perfect for a CSA box that contained chard, beans, and tomatoes.

    This is one of those recipes which is much more delicious than you would think from the name - the mint in the dressing really takes it to the next level. We got chard, green beans and tomatoes in our CSA box and this was the perfect dish for them. We cooked chicken thighs on the grill but otherwise we stuck to the recipe. Yum!

    p. 260 - With green beans and chard in abundance at this time of year, this dish had immediate appeal. I roasted a whole chicken, washed and chopped the beans and chard a day ahead so not much more than a quick cook of the veggies and assembly was needed during the week. Instead of dunking the chard in boiling water I stir-fried it in a little bit of oil in the wok (which I omitted from the dressing) then I added the beans (which I’d steamed til al dente) to the wok along w most of the dressing. The idea is to serve the warm chicken over the cooked, dressed beans and chard The night we were serving I simply warmed the chicken in the oven then placed slices over the salad the drizzled with the small amount of remaining dressing. This was really special. The chicken was tender and moist, the greens were fresh and vibrant and the lemon/shallot/basil dressing just tied it all together beautifully. This was such a nice summer meal that was substantial without being rich or heavy.
