White Bean and Roasted Chicken Salad, and Pane Bianco

We had Roast Chicken last night so tonight we had Chicken Salad. This recipe is from Cooking Light. 369 calories per serving! And it was simple to make.

2 cups coarsely chopped skinless, boneless rotisserie chicken
1 cup chopped tomato
1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
1/3 cup sliced fresh basil
2 (16-ounce) cans cannellini beans or other white beans, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

To prepare salad, place first 5 ingredients in a large bowl; stir gently to combine.
To prepare dressing combine vinegar and remaining ingredients, stirring with a whisk. Drizzle over salad, tossing gently to coat.

And if you are only consuming 369 calories per serving than there is room for bread! I made the Pane Bianco recipe again from the King Arthur Flour site. This time, I added olives. Nice choice. The salty taste from the olives was a nice addition.
