Easy and Delicious Chinese Chicken Salad

Salad is such a wonderful food because it is so forgiving, you can add pretty much any vegetable and with the right sauce it can turn into magic. Well, Asian inspired sauces are some of my favorites and they just happen to go really well with veggies and chicken. This Chinese Chicken Salad recipe is a keeper, and my husband proclaimed it "counter pounding good" -- thats pretty much a 5 star rating!

Ingredients

  • 5 cups organic cabbage, chopped
  • 2 cups organic sugar snap peas, chopped
  • 3 scallions, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 3 carrots shredded, I like to shred them in my food processor
  • 2-3 cups cooked chicken, shredded or chopped
  • 1/4 cup EVOO, plus more for cooking chicken
  • 1/4 cup tamari
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 Tbsp [easyazon_link identifier="B019QR8MQQ" locale="US" tag="amazonrf0a-20"]Coconut Aminos Sauce Organic[/easyazon_link], plus more for cooking chicken
  • 1 Tbsp  ginger paste
  • 1 Tbsp raw honey
  • 1 Tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup toasted sesame seeds

Instructions

  1. Combine all of the chopped veggies in a large bowl. Easy and Delicious Chinese Chicken Salad | Real Food RN
  2. Combine EVOO, tamari, ACV, aminos, ginger paste, honey, and sesame oil in a mixing bowl and whisk to combine. Easy and Delicious Chinese Chicken Salad | Real Food RN
  3. Pour dressing over vegetables and stir to combine. Easy and Delicious Chinese Chicken Salad | Real Food RN
  4. Allow to sit and marinate. Easy and Delicious Chinese Chicken Salad | Real Food RN
  5. In a medium skillet, cook the shredded chicken with some olive oil and aminos to add moisture and flavor. EVOO is not a high heat oil, so keep the heat just high enough to warm the chicken. Add a little garlic if you like. I sometimes do. Easy and Delicious Chinese Chicken Salad | Real Food RN
  6. To serve: plate up some of the veggies, top with chicken and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Easy and Delicious Chinese Chicken Salad

Notes

This Chinese Chicken Salad lasts in the fridge for 2 days. I like to store the chicken and the veggies in separate containers and then warm the chicken again later. It lasts longer that way.
