For the Salad
  1. In a hot pan with a splash of olive oil, pan fry the chick peas until nicely charred…but not burnt!
  2. Place the cooled, roasted chick peas into a bowl. Season lightly with Kosher salt and pepper. Add the rest of the salad ingredients, aside from the escarole.
  3. **Ultimately, you will dress all of these ingredients along with the escarole with the vinaigrette below.
For the Final Preparation
  1. Pre-heat a broiler to highest setting.
  2. Toss the salad mixture, along with the escarole, with the vinaigrette. Gently lay out on a salad plate.
  3. Rasp the cheese generously and evenly over the salads (1 oz. per serving).
  4. Quickly broil them until the cheese has just wilted. Top each salad with the fried Guernsey Girl “croutons”.
  5. Drizzle a teaspoon of “A” grade maple syrup over each salad and serve with a lemon wedge.
  6. Enjoy!
