Directions

Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the scallion whites and cook, stirring, until softened, about 2 minutes. Add the chicken broth, 3 cups water, the rice, carrots, turnips and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium low and simmer until the rice and vegetables are tender, 12 to 15 minutes.

Whisk the eggs and 3 tablespoons lemon juice in a medium bowl. Slowly ladle about 1 1/2 cups of the hot broth into the egg mixture, whisking constantly. Add the shredded chicken to the pot, then whisk in the egg-broth mixture. Return the soup to a gentle simmer, then remove from the heat. Stir in the scallion greens and parsley and season with salt and pepper.

Put the salad greens in a large bowl and toss with the remaining 3 tablespoons olive oil and 1 tablespoon lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper. Serve with the soup.
