Asian Chicken Salad


Since the New Year I have been all about the greens.

Salad greens that is.

There are so many possibilities when it comes to creating a delicious salad. It seems almost impossible to create a non-delicious salad. Throw in some veggies, fruit, nuts, dried berries, cheese, or just about anything your mind can come up with… it’s simple!

I love this salad for so many reasons.

The bright colors, the bold flavors, the sweet, the tangy, the crunch, the simplicity.

It’s ridiculously easy to throw this salad together for a quick lunch or a nice pair to spicy Kung Pao Chicken Dinner.

A quick note to this Asian Chicken Salad- I have found the BEST dressing for this creation. It’s the Asian Toasted Sesame dressing by Kraft. I use the Light{compared to the regular you’d never know the difference}, and I still enjoy all the flavor with less guilt.

Aren’t these the cutest measuring cups you’ve ever seen? They remind me of little baby blue tea cups. I want to have a tea party every time I take them out!

They were given to me from a dear friend that just happens to be one of the luckiest ladies I know. She was given them by someone everyone knows.

Just a nice lady named OPRAH!!

My friend was one of the lucky 12 that won Oprah’s Favorite Things from the online drawing! I’m talking about over $29,000 worth of things! {I feel like I know a celebrity!}

I still can’t believe she just gave me these. I love them! Thanks Holly!

You’ll love this salad, I promise!

What’s your favorite salad creation?


  1. You are the owner of the prettiest measuring cups I have ever seen. This salad looks so good. I like the fact that used cabbage and spinach together. I have some of the ingredients and I'll try to remember to get the rest on my next trip to the store.

  2. You are truly lucky those measuring cups are to die for! I’m on a mission to find them right now. Love the recipe but what’s missing…Chicken! I guess this can be a veggie Asian Salad but I added a 1/2 cup of shredded skinless roasted chicken breast. Thanks so much for all your recipes.

    • I’m dying laughing right now!! How could I forget to put the chicken in the recipe!?! Duh!! I can even see it in the picture, so I know I put some in there. Good catch! Thanks Adrienne! :)
