It is always easier to grate zest from a lemon before juicing it.

Ingredients

lemon zest

½ tsp, grated

fresh lemon juice

2 Tbsp

olive oil

1 Tbsp

table salt

¼ tsp

black pepper

tsp, freshly ground

canned cannellini beans

15½ oz, rinsed and drained

fresh cherry tomato(es)

2 cup(s), or grape tomatoes, halved

cooked skinless boneless chicken breast(s)

½ pound(s), shredded

fresh parsley

1 cup(s), flat-leaf variety

uncooked celery

1 rib(s), large, thinly sliced

uncooked shallot(s)

1 medium, minced

Instructions

  1. Whisk together the lemon zest and juice, oil, salt, and pepper in a serving bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and toss to coat. Let stand about 10 minutes to allow the flavors to blend. Yields 1 1/4 cup per serving.

Notes

That is why you will often see the zest listed first, even if the amount called for is less than the amount of juice needed.
