  • Mince garlic in a food processor or blender. With motor running, slowly add 1/2 cup of the olive oil. Continue to process for about 30 seconds, then strain oil through a fine-mesh strainer. Add 2/3 of the garlic back into the oil, and reserve remaining garlic for the dressing.

  • Arrange bread on a wire rack set over a baking sheet. Brush garlic oil over bread. Toast until crisp and golden, about 7 minutes. Meanwhile, whisk mayonnaise, lemon zest and 2 Tbs. lemon juice, Worcestershire, grated Parmesan, and reserved garlic in a small bowl. (It can be covered and refrigerated for several hours.)

  • When ready to serve, toss dressing with chicken; season to taste with salt and pepper. Toss salad with remaining 2 tsps. of olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste. Drizzle in remaining 1 Tb. lemon juice; toss again. Top each toast with a portion of greens, chicken and a Parmesan shaving. (Toasts can stand uncovered for up to 2 hours.)

These are wonderful - I am knocking this recipe down one star (wish there was a half star) just because the instructions make seem so much harder than they are. Whirl up the garlic and olive oil - set aside in a small jar there is no need to strain it. The garlic will settle to the bottom and the oil will rise. Use the top oil to coat the bread. Mix up the dressing toss with the chicken. The the only thing that should be made up at the end is tossing the salad dressing with the salad dressing - OO Lemon juice Salt Pepper & garlic - taste test it and remember you can always add a bit more garlic but you cannot take it out. They are not the easiest appy to eat standing up but they sure are delicious. Read More
