Chinese Chicken Salad

Want to try a new Chicken Salad? I found this recipe off of Pinterest and thought it was a great new salad to try. I think it would be a great side dish to a dinner or a meal in itself. It is healthy and nutritious! I will try it and let you know how it tastes!

 

Chinese Chicken Salad

2 Tbsp. soy sauce, 2 Tbsp. sesame oil, 2 Tbsp rice vinegar, 1 tsp. sugar, 1 clove of finely minced garlic, ½ tsp grated fresh ginger, and as generous a squeeze of sriracha (“hot cock” sauce) as your tastebuds can handle.

Chop half a head of Iceberg lettuce into shreds, wash, and dry. I would have added shredded Napa cabbage, but I was too lazy to go to the market. Toss lettuce with about half the dressing.

In a separate bowl, toss 2 c. shredded cooked chicken, a handful each of: sugar snap peas that have been cooked tender-crisp, shredded carrots, and julienned bell pepper (I used red). Toss with remaining dressing, then place on individual servings of dressed lettuce.

Add cooked, shelled edamame, slivered scallions, and toasted sesame seeds on top.
