I put this salad together on the heels of a mini-detox Joe and I did last weekend. We’d both had a bit of a blowout week food and drink wise, so to rein it in, we went to the grocery early Saturday morning and stocked up on tons of fruits and veggies.
Monday night, I was looking around the contents of the fridge and realized I had half a large head of cabbage left. Right after I thought, “What will I ever do with that,” I arrived at the perfect solution: Chinese chicken salad. And, I already had a bunch of other veggies to throw in, and some chicken thighs too!
This is extremely easy to make and can last a few days if you don’t dress it. While the chicken cooked, I chopped up all the veggies and prepped the dressing. Once it’s all mixed, portion out how much salad you want to eat, then dress just that serving. The rest of the dry salad can be stored and eaten for lunch or dinner the next day (or even the day after).
Below is a basic recipe of what I did. But mix it up! There’s no exact science to this. Throw in whatever veggies you love or have on hand! Read more »
