If you're not planning to eat the salad all at once, don't drizzle the vinaigrette over the whole dish. Pack away the vinaigrette on its own container and dress the salad right before serving.

  • 2 heads romaine lettuce, cut crosswise in 1-inch strips (about 12 cups)
  • 1 2- to 2 1/2-pound rotisserie chicken, meat shredded
  • 2 peaches, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 3 ounces blue cheese or feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup almonds, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

In a large bowl, combine the lettuce, chicken, peaches, cheese and almonds on a platter.

In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, oil, salt and pepper. Drizzle over the salad.

Makes 6 servings.
