How to Make Asian Chicken Salad


  1. In a small bowl, infuse oil by combining sesame oil with red pepper flakes; whisk and let it sit for 1 ½ to 2 hours. Later, place a fine sieve over a mixing bowl and pour in the oil mixture; discard red pepper flakes. Add honey, hoisin, rice vinegar and ponzu; whisk until blended and set aside.
  2. To assemble the salad, combine iceberg lettuce, green & red cabbage, red & yellow peppers, carrots, celery, green onions and pickled ginger; toss gently. Add grilled chicken, toasted sesame seeds, cashews and mandarin segments. Toss again before adding chopped cilantro; toss. Pour on the salad dressing and toss until ingredients are well coated.
  3. Plate salad and sprinkle with crispy chow mein noodles. Make 2 large servings
