Serves: 5
Ingredients
  • 2 cups cooked chicken breast, shredded or diced
  • 1 head romaine lettuce, shredded
  • 1 head iceburg lettuce, shredded
  • 1 rounded cup of red cabbage, shredded
  • 1 cup of carrots (about 2 carrots), julienned or shredded
  • 1/2 bunch of green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2-3 tablespoons cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
  • Asian salad dressing:
  • 1 + 1/4 teaspoons fresh ginger, peeled and finely minced
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and finely minced
  • 1/3 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/2 cup dark sesame oil
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 + 1/2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons + 1/2 teaspoon organic honey
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red chili flakes
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
  • 1/2 tablespoon creamy peanut butter
  • Garnishes: sesame seeds, crushed red pepper flakes (optional), sliced or slivered almonds, cashew halves, crispy wonton strips
Instructions
  1. Start by preparing the homemade Asian salad dressing so the flavors have a chance to meld together nicely.
  2. After shredding (or dicing) the chicken breast, add it to a large mixing bowl. Drizzle half of the salad dressing directly on top of the chicken. With kitchen tongs, mix these ingredients together. Let the chicken sit and soak in all of that goodness while you finish prepping the remainder of the recipe.
  3. Add the shredded romaine lettuce, iceburg lettuce, carrots and red cabbage to the mixing bowl. Add in the sliced green onions and chopped cilantro leaves. With tongs, toss the ingredients until well combined.
  4. Generously garnish your Chinese chicken salad with sesame seeds, dried chili flakes, almonds, cashew halves and wonton strips. To keep your salad nice and crisp, do not add the remainder of the Asian dressing until serving time.
  5. Place the salad dressing carafe with the remainder of the Asian dressing beside the serving bowl. As they serve themselves, family and guests can drizzle the dressing on top.
  6. Dressing:
  7. Add all ingredients to a small mixing bowl.
  8. Whisk everything together until all of the ingredients are fully incorporated.
  9. Transfer the Asian dressing to a carafe and allow the mixture to sit for 10 minutes to give the flavors an ample opportunity to combine.
  10. Serve with Chinese chicken salad or use as a flavorful chicken marinade.
