Ingredients

2 small heads Boston or Bibb lettuce, torn into pieces
4 stalks celery, sliced on the diagonal
1/2 red onion, finely chopped
2 cups (about 1/2 pound) green grapes, halved
3 ounces blue cheese, crumbled
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Kosher salt and pepper
1 3 1/2- to 4-pound rotisserie chicken, meat thickly sliced

Preparation

In a large bowl, combine the lettuce, celery, onion, grapes, and blue cheese.

In a small bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, vinegar, oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Divide the salad and chicken among individual plates. Serve with the vinaigrette.

Tip: Omit the chicken and this salad becomes a delicious side dish for grilled steak, pork chops, or burgers.
