One of our family’s favorite meals is an Asian-flavored Chicken Salad, that throw back to the nineties that was so very popular. It seems every restaurant had a version of an Asian Chicken Salad. And now, it seems like every restaurant still does. These are flavors that have found a place in our hearts.
And a good Asian Composed Salad is not hard to make. Full of crunchy vegetables and tender chicken, the right dressing can make the dish just sing! A few weeks ago, I shared with you how to fry rice sticks. So fun!
Since I like to keep a bag or two of Asian Chicken in the freezer, it’s pretty easy to pull together some rendition of this salad. Mixing up a good dressing takes only a matter of minutes.
For the salad itself, combine any of the following components:
- lettuce or cabbage
- julienned carrots
- chopped cilantro
- peeled and sliced cucumbers
- grilled chicken breast, sliced
- drained, sliced water chestnuts
- slivered almonds
- mandarin oranges
- chopped green onions
