Fast and Fabulous Asian Chicken Salad

Monday, April 16, 2012

Tis the season for the arrival of main dish salads onto the dinner menu again!  We loved the way the Asian flavors and crisp wholesome veggies combined into this "fast and fabulous" salad.   Chopping the red pepper and green onions were the only prep work, so it would make for a great, healthy weeknight meal.

The ingredients:

1 pkg. (16-ounces) coleslaw mix
1/3 cup sesame ginger salad dressing (Mine was called "Asian ginger dressing" and had sesame oil listed as an ingredient)
3 cups cubed cooked chicken (I used a rotisserie chicken)
3/4  cup Thai peanut sauce (found in the international aisle with other Asian foods)
1 medium sweet red pepper, julienned
1/2 cup chow mein noodles
2 green onions, chopped

In a large bowl, combine coleslaw mix and salad dressing.  Transfer to a serving platter or bowl.  Combine chicken and peanut sauce ; place over coleslaw mixture. 

Top with red pepper, chow mein noodles and onions. (or just toss it all together)  Serve immediately. 

Makes 4-6 servings.  Enjoy!
