Quail marinade:


To make dressing, combine all ingredients in a blender, except for the oil. Blend until well combined. With the blender on low speed, drizzle 1 1/2 cups extra-virgin olive oil into blender. Chill.

Combine all of the quail marinade ingredients except oil and butter. Add the quail and marinate for at least 3 hours in the refrigerator. Remove the quail from the marinade and saute in olive oil and butter. Cook for 2 to 4 minutes on each side. They will turn a golden dark oak color.

Combine the lettuce, spring mix, tomato, onion, and cilantro in a large bowl. Dress the salad with dressing. Divide salad onto 4 salad plates. Cut the quail in 1/2 and place at the base of the salad. Garnish with chives or scallions and serve.

Consumption of raw or undercooked eggs, shellfish and meat may increase the risk of foodborne illness.
