Notes

Cook’s Note: Never leave a child unattended in the kitchen. Limit the child to tasks that are safe and age-appropriate.

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Step 2

Whisk together the yogurt, lemon juice, oil, vinegar, thyme, ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper in a small bowl until combined; set aside.

Step 3

Spread the walnuts on a baking sheet, and toast until lightly browned and fragrant, 5 to 7 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes, then break up into ¼-inch pieces.

Step 4

To assemble: Toss the walnuts, chicken, apples, grapes and scallion whites together with the dressing in a large bowl until everything is well coated; season with salt and pepper. Scoop a scant ½ cup of the salad into each romaine leaf, and arrange 2 on each serving plate. Garnish with the scallion greens, and serve.
