To serve, mix well with dressing, adjusting seasonings, vinegar and chicken broth as necessary. Arrange field greens on chilled serving plates.
Mound salad on greens. Garnish with fresh basil. Serve immediately.
Make 4 servings. NOTE: To roast peppers, stand them on a board and cut sides off in 4 slabs. Arrange, skin side up, on baking sheet lines with foil. Broil 6" from heat until skin is blackened. Wrap in foil lining. Slip off skin when cool enough to handle.
