Beautiful and tasty Chinese Chicken Salad

A perfect lunch or dinner for hot weather! Chinese Chicken Salad is full of flavors and topped with a yummy ginger/sesame dressing. So good!

I used already cooked and sliced chicken, but feel free to cook your own.

Instructions

Compose the Salad:

  1. I used pre-cooked and sliced Chicken Breasts for this recipe (don’t judge, it was a hot day!). If you wish to cook your own, you can poach, broil, or pan-fry them. It will take about 4-5 minutes per side. Just make sure they are done. You can serve them warm or cold on the salad.
  2. In a large bowl, place the romaine, cabbage, carrot, green onion, water chestnuts, and mandarins.
  3. Top with the sliced and/or cubed chicken. 

Make the Dressing:

  1. In a jar with a lid, place all of the Dressing ingredients. Shake until emulsified.

Serve:

  1. Pour dressing over salad, mix. Top with chow Mein noodles and sliced almonds.

Notes

  1. For the cabbage, you can use any color of cabbage.  I used pre-packaged coleslaw mix that consisted of mainly purple cabbage.
