Chinese Chicken Salad

Beth Pierce


This healthy and delicious Chinese Chicken Salad combines Napa and red cabbage, carrots, chicken, sweet red bell pepper, sliced almonds, and crispy chow mein noodles all drizzled with a sweet ginger soy based vinaigrette. Using already cooked chicken the salad comes together in less than 20 minutes making it perfect for those busy summer nights. Hubby and I just love those quick to make tasty salads for our busy weekend lunches and warm summer dinners. This salad, Cobb Salad, Broccoli Salad, and Loaded Wedge Salad are just a few of our many favorites.
