Tasty Crunchy Chicken Salad

This Week, our style-foodie is featuring  another   Instagram  favorite simple salads.

Today’s crunchy salad would  is  the perfect the quick meal to bring along to picnics or to pack ahead for  2 months until summer time.  Let’s  shed those winter jackets and indulge in eating fresh salads to get our summer bodies . You can enjoy 3 types of your favorite green lettuce  spring, classic Caesar, or a good romaine with buttermilk dressing,  We like add a little spices  our salads that are not found on everyday menus. We love making homemade dressing  with oil,  butter &coconut milk, to add to this  delicious salad — the dressing adds brightness and the chicken and  few pine nuts provide you with some filling protein. This salad also keeps really full well

 

Recipe: Crunchy Chicken Salad
Serves 4

You’ll need:

3 cups shredded Chinese cabbage
3 cups shredded red cabbage
1 cup shredded carrots (lengthwise to get soft curls)
1 cup unsalted cashews
1/4 cup chopped chives (try cutting with scissors)
1 cup roughly chopped mint leaves
1 cup torn cilantro leaves
4 small red thai chilies, seeds removed and finely sliced (optional if you don’t like spice)
4 fully cooked chicken breasts, cut into slices

For the coconut lime dressing:

1 cup of coconut milk
2 tbsp of fish sauce
4 tbsp of lime juice
2 tbsp of coconut sugar

Combine cabbage, carrot, cashews, chives, mint, cilantro and chicken in a large bowl and toss gently to combine.

In a measuring cup, combine coconut milk, fish sauce, lime juice and sugar. Stir well to combine. Pour half the dressing over the salad and gently toss. Divide between plates and top with chilies. Add more dressing to taste.

I like to make a lot of dressing and keep some in fridge to dip veggies in or pour over rice, but you can half the dressing recipe if you want to. Beware of the chilies, as they are very spicy. After slicing them, wash your hands very well and don’t touch your eyes or nose. If you prefer a little less spice, sprinkle the finished salad with dried chili flakes instead.
