Chargrilled chicken salad with ginger miso dressing

all details

Combine a blast of searing heat and serious Japanese flavour to add an intense, lovely zing to fresh produce. Any chargrilled seafood would be great in this salad, as would pork loin.

Ingredients

2 large chicken thigh fillets, skinless

1 tbsp olive oil

sea salt and pepper

1/2 bunch asparagus

100g snow peas

100g sugar snap peas

1/2 cup black fungi

100g daikon

handful baby spinach leaves

1/2 punnet micro herbs

For the dressing

1/2 clove garlic, finely chopped

1 tsp finely grated ginger

1 1/2 tbsp yellow miso

1 1/2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1 tbsp water

3 tsp honey

1/4 tsp sea salt

3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

 

Method

PREHEAT GRILL to medium. Make sure the bars are clean and well-oiled.

TOSS CHICKEN FILLETS in olive oil, sea salt and pepper. Place on grill and cook for 7 minutes on each side. Remove from grill and rest.

SNAP OFF the woody ends of the asparagus. Chargrill until al dente, about 1-2 minutes, depending on thickness of asparagus. Remove from heat.

BLANCH SNOW PEAS and sugar snap peas separately in boiling salted water until al dente. Refresh in iced water.

TOP AND TAIL snow peas and sugar snap peas. Cut snow peas diagonally in half. Cut asparagus into diagonal lengths about the size of the sugar snap peas. Finely cut the fungi. Peel the daikon and cut into matchsticks. Slice chicken into 1cm strips.

FOR THE DRESSING whisk together all ingredients except the oil in a mixing bowl. Add oil in a thin stream, whisking continuously until emulsified. Adjust seasoning to taste.

PLACE VEGETABLES in a large bowl with spinach leaves, chicken pieces and dressing. Gently combine and share over four plates. Garnish with micro herbs and serve.
