Emmet McCusker's Curried Chicken Salad

Emmet is a big fan of Moghul Curry and he sent us a recipe he created and loves.

 2 heads Butter lettuce
 1 bunch spinach
 2 green onions, diced
 2 cups broccoli florets (small)
 2 cups asparagus (2" sections)
 2 cups julienned carrots - (3 or 4" sections)
 2 chicken breasts

 1-2 heaping tsp Moghul Curry powder (or to taste)
 1 clove garlic chopped
 1-2 tsp honey
 1 tbsp fresh lime juice (or lemon)
 1/2 -1 cup olive oil
 2 tbsp mayo (optional)
 1 tsp tabasco or Franks hot sauce (optional)

Prepare dressing.

Brush chicken breasts with 1/4 cup of dressing - barbecue until firm but not over done.

Wash and shred lettuce and spinach - place in a large salad bowl with the green onions. Steam the broccoli, asparagus and carrot strips for a couple of minutes. Remove chicken from BBQ - pull apart into bite sized chunks using two forks. Place hot steamed veggies and hot pulled chicken into the centre of the salad greens - pour remaining dressing over the hot ingredients, toss and enjoy.

Serves 4.
