My Kitchen: Asian Chicken Salad

One of the things that’s really important to me is making sure I bring a lunch to work every day. It’s healthier, faster, and let’s face it – cheaper. Eating out is expensive!

Since I’m trying to watch what I’m eating, I have a repertoire of a few salads that I take for lunch all the time. This one is inspired by one I used to pick up at Costco. I was buying it a lot, and then it disappeared over the holidays, so I figured out how to make it on my own! This easy salad is so good – really fresh and filling with lots of good protein on top from the chicken. A lot of people would call this a Chinese salad too, because of the flavors. Enjoy!

  1. Oh yum!!! I need some good new recipes so we will have to give this one a try. My hubby found a similar recipe a while back but o never made it. So yours goes on the list instead.

    1. Hey Ashley! Usually I use a Lite Asian inspired one – I like Kraft’s Lite Asian Toasted Sesame and my husband likes the Ken’s Lite Sesame Ginger (it’s got a little spice). Hope you enjoy it!

  2. Sounds delicious! And how do you make that little recipe graphic thing (technically speaking lol)?
