Spicy Sweet Chicken & Peach Salad with Honeyed Pecans

Boston lettuce is tender and almost buttery, which is why it’s also called butterhead lettuce. Here, it offers a delicate contrast to crunchy snap peas and pecans, soft peaches and tender red peppers. The sriracha-laced balsamic vinaigrette adds a lovely burst of heat that stands as a counterpoint to the sweet peaches.
