How to Make Chinese Chicken Salad


  1. Combine salad ingredients in a large bowl.
    In a small bowl, whisk together dressing ingredients, and pour over salad. Toss well to coat, and refrigerate.
  2. *These are the ingredients I used, but feel free to make substitutions.

    Bragg's Liquid Aminos: This is a natural soy sauce alternative. It's gluten free, and hasn't been fermented. It contains 16 essential and non-essential amino acids. I get this at Krogers, in the health food section.
    You could use low- sodium soy sauce or tamari instead.
  3. Gourmet Garden ginger paste: This tastes as good as fresh, without any prep work!
    You can find it in the produce section of the grocery.
  4. Truvia: This is a natural sweetener made from the stevia plant.

  5. I used organic hemp seed oil that I get from Mountain Rose Herbs.
    Hemp Seed Oil is a highly nutritious food, and contains anti-oxidants, protein, carotene, phytosterols, phospholipids, as well as a number of minerals including calcium, magnesium, sulfur, potassium, iron, zinc, and phosphorus. It is a source of complete protein and contains all twenty know amino acids, including the nine essential amino acids. It also contains Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, C, D, and E. The green color in Hemp Seed Oil is a result of the high level of chlorophyll which is naturally present in the seeds. Perhaps the most valued property of Hemp Seed Oil is its percentage of Essential Fatty Acids, which is higher than any other plant in the world. It contains both Omega-6 and Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids, in a proportion of 3:1.
    In one Tablespoon, you will receive 2.5 grams of Omega-3 fatty acids, 8 grams of Omega-6 fatty acids, and 2 grams of Omega-9 fatty acids - a perfect balance. No other single source oil has this ideal combination of Essential Fatty Acids. Hemp Seed Oil is easily digestible in its raw state. It contains less than 10% saturated fats, and 70-80% polyunsaturated fatty acids, the highest of any vegetable oil .
