How to Make Oriental Chicken Salad

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine chicken, water chestnuts, snow peas, celery, green onions, bean sprouts and just enough salad dressing to coat everything. You don’t want the salad swimming in dressing.
  2. Serve chilled. Garnish with slivered almonds and extra green onion slices before serving.
  3. * To toast almonds:
    Place almonds in skillet over low heat for about 10 mins, or until lightly browned, stirring once in a while.
    When they are done, they will smell nutty and toasty.
  4. *NOTE: If you can’t find Ginger soy salad dressing, here is the recipe that I use if I have more time:

    Ginger Soy Salad Dressing:
    ¼ cup vegetable oil
    5 teaspoons low-sodium soy sauce
    1 teaspoon ground ginger
    1/8 teaspoon salt, (or to taste)
    1/8 teaspoon pepper
    1/8 teaspoon sugar

    Mix all ingredients in a glass container. Store in refrigerator up to one month.
