Ingredients

- 1 lemon
- 15g Parmesan cheese
- 2 anchovy fillets in oil
- 4 heaped tablespoons natural yogurt
- ½ teaspoon English mustard
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- white wine vinegar
- extra virgin olive oil
- 1 small red onion
- ½ a small cauliflower (300g)
- 1 romaine lettuce
- olive oil
- 1 sprig of fresh rosemary
- 2 x 120g free-range skinless chicken breasts
- 1 thick slice of wholemeal bread

Method

1. Finely grate the lemon zest and Parmesan into a large bowl. Slice and add the anchovies, yogurt, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce.

2. Squeeze in half the lemon juice, add 1 tablespoon of vinegar and 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and mix to make your dressing.

3. Start by peeling and very finely slicing the red onion, then stir it through the dressing.

4. Slice the cauliflower and lettuce and pile both on top of the dressed onion, tossing together only moments before serving.

5. Put 1 teaspoon of olive oil in a frying pan on medium heat. Pick the rosemary leaves over the chicken and lightly season it on both sides. Cook for 4 minutes on each side, or until golden and cooked through.

6. Cube the bread and toast alongside the chicken, moving regularly until evenly golden, removing only when super-crispy.

7. Toss the salad together and season to perfection, slice up the chicken and serve with a sprinkling of croutons and lemon wedges for squeezing over.

You can devise your own variations using such complementary ingredients as eggs, tomatoes, avocado, lobster, and bacon.

"I’ve been using this recipe for a long time. I adore it for its restaurant quality. Last week I replaced the olive oil with Greek yogurt and I was surprised with the result."
