Asian Chicken Salad
This salad delivers vibrant flavor from the combination of assertive Asian seasonings in the dressing. The crunchy Napa cabbage is delicious and adds visual appeal as well as texture.
1. Combine soy sauce, vinegar, vegetable oil, sesame oil, mustard, ginger, chile paste, and garlic in a jar with a tight-fitting lid. Shake well.
2. Combine chicken, Napa cabbage, cucumbers, scallions, and cilantro in a large mixing bowl. Toss salad with dressing, and serve immediately.
Note: Both the salad and dressing can be prepared up to 6 hours in advance and refrigerated, tightly covered. Do not dress the salad until just prior to serving.
Active time: 15 minutes Start to finish: 15 minutes
Substitute roast pork or cooked fish for the chicken.
