Roasted Carrot and Chicken Salad with Pistachios

Roasted Carrot and Chicken Salad with Pistachios: Main Image

Quick Facts

Servings: 4
Prep Time: 20 min.
Cook Time: 25 min.
Total: 45 min.
Roasting is a great way to bring out any vegetable's natural sweetness. In this colorful salad, tender chunks of carrot are the perfect counterpoint to the lingering, nutty flavor of crunchy pistachios.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb large carrots, peeled and cut into 1/2" diagonal slices (2 cups)
  • 1 Tbs brown sugar
  • 2 Tbs extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken-breast halves (6 ounces each), cut crosswise in thin slices
  • 4 Tbs snipped fresh chives or sliced scallion greens
  • 1 Tbs plus 1 teaspoon cider vinegar
  • 1 medium shallot, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups baby arugula
  • 1 bunch watercress, tough stems removed
  • 1 1/2 cups halved red seedless grapes
  • 2 Tbs unsalted shelled chopped pistachios

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 425F. Coat an 11" x 9" baking pan and a rimmed baking sheet with olive oil cooking spray.
  • Place the carrots in the prepared baking pan. Sprinkle with the sugar, 1 teaspoon of the olive oil, and 1/8 teaspoon each of the salt and pepper. Toss to coat well. Roast, stirring several times, for minutes, until the carrots are tender and lightly golden at the edges.
  • About 5 minutes before the carrots are done, place the chicken in a mound on the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with 1 teaspoon of the oil, and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of the chives, and 1/8 teaspoon each of the salt and pepper. Toss to mix. Arrange in a single layer. Roast, turning once, for 5 to 7 minutes, until cooked through. Remove carrots and chicken from the oven and let cool a few minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a salad bowl, mix the vinegar, shallot, and the remaining oil, 2 tablespoons chives, and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Let stand 5 minutes or more to blend the flavors.
  • To finish the salad, add the arugula, watercress, and grapes to the dressing and toss to mix well.
  • Spread out on a platter. Top with the carrots, the chicken and any juices, and sprinkle with the pistachios.
  • Serve warm.
