Asian Chicken Salad

Servings: 4

Ingredients

Ingredients for salad

  • 1 rotisserie chicken meat shredded or pulled off the bones
  • 1 red pepper sliced
  • toasted slivered almonds
  • Crunchy chow mein noodles found in Asian section of grocery store
  • 1 bag of mixed romaine lettuce
  • 1 bag of coleslaw mix
  • 1 orange skin removed and quartered or sliced

Ingredients for dressing

  • 1 cup of mayonnaise or substitute lowfat yogurt
  • 1/4 cup of soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp of toasted sesame oil optional
  • Water to thin out if necessary

Instructions

  • On a large platter, empty your cole slaw bag and mixed lettuce bag on to the platter, tossing it all together until evenly mixed. Add your sliced peppers and oranges over top of the lettuce.
  • Next, place your slivered almonds in a small pan over medium heat for 5 minutes tossing occasionally to get them lightly toasted. Remove from heat let cool.
  • For the dressing, in a medium bowl, mix together your Mayonnaise (or low fat plain yogurt), olive oil, soy sauce and toasted sesame oil (if using this). If the dressing seems to thick, add 1 tbsp of water at a time until it reaches a desired consistency.
  • Next, take your cooled almonds, chicken and a large heaping handful of your crunchy chow mein noodles and add that to your salad. Drizzle your salad with a little bit of your dressing.
  • Serve the salad with the extra chow mein noodles and remaining dressing on the side.
  • Enjoy!
