Method

1. To prepare vinaigrette: Peel the garlic & smash with the side of a chef's knife. Using a fork, mash the garlic with ¼ teaspoon salt in a small Bowl to form a coarse paste. Whisk in 5 tablespoons oil. Add 6 tablespoons orange juice, vinegar & mustard; whisk until well blended. Taste & whisk in up to 4 tablespoons more juice to mellow the flavor; season with more salt, if desired. Set aside at room temperature.

2. To prepare salad: Combine beans, chicken, zucchini (&/or summer squash), celery, cheese & sun-dried tomatoes (if using) in a large Bowl until well blended. Add chopped basil & ¾ cup vinaigrette; toss until combined. Taste & season with salt &/or pepper, if desired.

3. Toss the remaining vinaigrette with escarole (or romaine) & radicchio in a medium Bowl. Serve the salad on the greens, garnished with fresh basil leaves.
