Salad with Sous Vide Chicken Recipe

Right now we are getting lots of spring veggies popping up in our garden and in markets around us. I wanted to do a simple salad to highlight the flavors of our veggies. I also added some sous vide chicken to help make it more filling.

I used a spicy vindaloo seasoning on the sous vide chicken to give it some bite and help flavor the salad. I cooked it for a few hours at 141°F (60.5°C) then grilled it for a few minutes to get the crust on it. For the dressing I used a simple white wine vinaigrette.

You can use anything in the salad you want but here I used lettuce and radishes from the garden and some yellow peppers for color and crunch. I also tossed on fresh blueberries since they are in season and I can't get enough of them. I also topped it with roasted seeds for texture and saltiness.
