Southeastern Asian Chicken Salad

I love the crunchiness of this salad – if you haven’t ever tried broccoli slaw go out and get some! It’s a great shortcut to making salads. This is a excellent salad to take along to work or when on you’re on the go – it’s really a slaw so a few hours of letting the flavors meld makes it even better!

Serves: 2 meal portions, 4 side salad portions
You can serve this salad over salad greens, but I usually just rely on the broccoli slaw to be the bed of the salad. Feel free to add other vegetables and herbs that you might have in the fridge – bell peppers and mint would be wonderful additions.
Ingredients
  • Salad
  • 2 cups cooked, shredded chicken
  • 12 oz bag of broccoli slaw

  • Dressing
  • 1/2 cup unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 2 tbsp light agave
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp Asian sweet chili sauce
Instructions
  1. Prep the salad: Toss together chicken, broccoli slaw, carrots, and peanuts (if using) in a large bowl.
