Ingredients

    For The Dressing:

  • ½ teaspoon anchovy paste
  • 1 garlic clove (chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (from 1 large lemon)
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 5 chives (chopped fine)
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • For The Salad:

  • Skin from 1 turkey breast or 1 whole rotisserie chicken
  • 3 hearts of romaine (bottoms removed and halved lengthwise)
  • 1 head radicchio (cut into 8 wedges)
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup shredded cooked turkey or rotisserie chicken
  • ½ cup freshly grated parmesan cheese

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the anchovy paste, garlic, lemon juice, and mayonnaise. Fold in the chives and Parmesan and set aside to let the flavors mingle.
  2. Preheat the broiler to high. Spread out the turkey skin on a rimmed baking sheet and broil for 3 to 4 minutes until crisp. Remove to a paper-towel-lined plate and let the skin cool before breaking it into smaller pieces.
  3. Preheat a large grill pan over medium-high heat. Brush the romaine and radicchio leaves on all sides with the olive oil and season with salt. Grill the lettuces about 2 minutes per side or until they are nicely charred and slightly wilted. Remove to a cutting board and chop into 2-inch pieces.
  4. Place the turkey in a large serving bowl and toss with 1 or 2 tablespoons of the dressing. Add the lettuce leaves and ¼ cup more dressing and toss well to coat. Add the cheese and toss again. Top the dressed salad with the crispy skin and serve.
