A few tips and tricks to incorporating a healthy lifestyle

Chopped Asian Chicken Napa Cabbage Salad with a Sweet Asian Dressing

My salads tend to look a lot alike most of the time, so when my mom busted out this yummy salad full of all sorts of different things a few weeks ago it was like a party in my mouth. I loved it! It tasted SO fresh & delicious. I wanted to recreate it ASAP. I changed it up a little bit because I couldn’t find all of the ingredients that she used…(I still have no idea what a daikon is…sorry mom, I left that out.) I also added chicken to make it a main dish instead of a side. I LOVED how it turned out.

Ingredients: Chop the following & combine in a bowl

  • 1 head of napa cabbage (I actually used a bag of pre cut cole slaw to save time)
  • 1/2 red bell pepper sliced very thinly
  • 3 scallions, white and pale green parts only, chopped or julienned
  • 1/2 cup snow peas thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cucumber julienned

Add in 7 oz of chicken. I used one can of the Costco chicken breast that I’d seasoned with black pepper & garlic salt.

Sweet Asian Dressing: whisk together the following

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • zest and juice of one lime
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • sprinkle of crushed red pepper
  • 3 tsp soy sauce
  • 2 TBS rice wine vinegar
  • 1-2 tsp stevia in the raw (or regular sugar if you would rather use that)
  • salt to taste

Combine the chopped vegetables, chicken, and dressing together and stir.
