Happy Salad Saturday! A few weeks ago Mom and I were in Sam's Club and found this awesome Asian Chopped Salad Mix by Taylor Farms. While it was very fresh, yummy and certainly convenient, you could easily make your own, so I have put the approximate ingredients in my recipe. I didn't use the dressing that was in it, I decided to make my own.
Chopped Asian Chicken Salad
For the salad:
1 pint of cherry tomatoes, quartered
1 small bag of snow peas - 1/4' slices
1 yellow bell pepper, diced
3-4 sliced green onions
1/3 bunch roughly shopped cilantro
2 c shredded Napa or Savoy cabbage
2 c shredded green cabbage
1/2 c shredded carrot
1/2 c shredded red cabbage
2 grilled, shredded chicken breasts
1/2 cup roasted, chopped peanuts
For the dressing:
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp rice vinegar
1 tbsp sesame oil
1/4 c vegetable oil
1/4 c orange juice
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp dry mustard
1 - Mix all the salad ingredients, except chicken and peanuts.
2 - Mix all the dressing ingredients in a jar, seal it & shake it baby!
3 - Now assemble your salad by placing your veggies a bowl, add some of the dressing and toss. Top it with chicken and peanuts.
You're drooling now, right? This is one of the freshest, cleanest tasting salads - I love how the dressing sparkles with the orange juice! And the peanuts put it over the top!!! Of course you can use fresh ginger and garlic in the dressing, it would only make it better! If you do, let the dressing sit a bit to absorb those flavors.
Love and hugs,
