I always soak my romaine with water and ice cubes, it makes it even fresher and crispier!
For the bacon

For the turkey
In the meantime, in a nonstick skillet, brown shallots in 1/3 of the olive oil at medium high heat, approximately 2-3 minutes. Add turkey breasts and sear 2 minutes on each side, then continue cooking for 8-10 minutes, or until turkey is well cook and its internal temperature reaches 165o
F. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly.
For the dressing
Combine the remaining 2/3 of the olive oil with lemon juice, garlic and mayonnaise. Shake well to give it a creamy texture.
To assemble the salad
Divide the lettuce in four bowls. Add tomatoes, chives, a dash of salt and pepper and mix well. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and bacon pieces and turkey breast strips.
