Chicory leaves make great edible spoons, especially when filled with a delicious chicken Caesar salad
- STEP 1
Slowly fry the lardons in a small frying pan until they are crisp. Remove from the pan and leave to cool on kitchen paper to absorb any excess fat. Finely shred the chicken and lettuce. Place in a bowl and add the croûtons, dressing, parmesan and cooled lardons. Season with some freshly milled black pepper, then mix everything gently together.
- STEP 2
Spoon the Caesar salad on to the chicory leaves, leaving the base ends free (to act as handles). Sprinkle with parmesan shavings and grind black pepper over the top, then arrange on a plate and they are ready – it’s as simple as that.
These can be prepared to the end of step 1, two hours in advance and chilled. Put together half an hour before serving.
