A perfect light lunch salad that is great to serve for a luncheon, book club, or a working meeting. You can easily scale this salad up or down, I like to serve 2-3 cups of greens per person. Breadsticks or crusty bread with salted butter or a cup of seasonal soup are great ways to round out the meal.
For the vinaigrette: add the ingredients to a jar with a tight fitting lid and shake until emulsified.
For the salad, add lettuce and chicken to a large bowl. Lightly toss with enough vinaigrette to coat the leaves. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Divide between two plates. Top each plate with goat cheese, almonds and figs.
