CHINESE CHICKEN SALAD WITH PEANUT DRESSING

Simply Salads by Jennifer Chandler
Peanut butter lovers beware: The dressing in this colorful and tasty salad is addictive.
Makes 4 Dinner Salads

 

Ingredients
• 1/2 cup Peanut Dressing (below)
• 1/2 cup fresh snow peas
• 1 bag (5 ounces) Spring Mix
• 2 cups shredded cooked chicken
• 2 carrots, peeled and grated
• 1/4 cup thinly sliced scallions
• 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves
• 1/2 cup chopped roasted peanuts
• 2 limes, quartered, for garnish
 

Directions
• Prepare the Peanut Dressing.

• Bring salted water to a boil in a medium pot. Add the snow peas and cook until vibrant green and crisp tender, 1 to 1 1/2 minutes. Drain the snow peas and immerse in an ice water bath to stop the cooking process. Drain again and place in a large salad bowl.

• Add the Spring Mix, chicken, carrots, scallions, cilantro, and peanuts and toss. Add the dressing to taste and gently toss to coat.

• Garnish with lime wedges. Serve immediately.

Tip: To save time, pick up a roasted rotisserie chicken at your local grocery for this recipe. The meat will be fresh, juicy and flavorful.
 

PEANUT DRESSING
Makes About 1 Cup

• 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
• 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
• 1 teaspoon finely grated freshly peeled ginger
• 1 tablespoon soy sauce
• 1 tablespoon honey
• 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
• 1/2 cup canola oil
• Pinch of red pepper flakes (optional)
• Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

In a small bowl whisk together the vinegar, peanut butter, ginger, soy sauce, honey, sesame oil, canola oil, and red pepper flakes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
If you use natural peanut butter, you may need to add a little sugar to sweeten the flavor.
