Thai Chicken Salad

Today I’m going to share my new favorite salad!  I could eat this salad everyday, or at least once a week.  I even pushed the limits with my kiddps recently and served it to them for dinner!  Crazy…..I know!

I seperated everything out and let them make it how they wanted.  My littlest just ate chicken and dipped it in the dressing, she might have snagged a couple red peppers too.  My older two loved it.  The middle picky child ate some of the chicken and kept his mouth shut.

A month or so ago I had a Pampered Chef party at my house and this is the salad that my PC consultant made for my guests.  It was a hit.  So all the credit goes to Pampered Chef for this recipe.  They’re just full of amazing tips, tricks and quick and easy recipes!

Thai Chicken Salad will literally take you 15 minutes to put together from start to finish.  That includes whipping together the delicios dressing.

To make the dressing take your favorite bottle of Poppy Seed Dressing add 2 cloves of minced Garlic, and 1 inch of Ginger Root minced finely.  Give it a good shake, and set it aside.

 


Now for the really hard part. Wash a 12 ounce bag of Baby Spinach, and layer it in a salad dish, next open 1 12 ounce bag of Broccoli Slaw layer that over the spinach, slice one Red Pepper garnish the edge.  If you want to get creative,  add matchstick carrots, cucumber, and chopped fresh basil.  Make it your own!

 

Next grill 3-4 Chicken Breasts with a sprinkle of salt and pepper.  Slice them thin.

There you have it!  Finish it off with peanuts or toasted almonds for a little extra crunch.  Thai Chicken Salad is simple, quick, and easy!!! And healthy!  Let’s not forget that.  Great for lunch or dinner.  Don’t be afraid to make this your own, use what vegetables you have on hand!

 

 

It’s so good, you practically want to lick your plate clean!

    OK, YUM. I am making this soon! Did PC have a handy, dandy tool that finely minced the ginger. I hate mincing ginger for some reason…crazy, I know, but true! Looks lovely!!

      Why yes they did, she used her garlic press and pressed the garlic through it, mostly juiced it, but it gives it good flavor. I still prefer to chop chop chop mine ; ) it smells so goood! ; )

    Love the spinach here – I made it yesterday and also added some lightly roasted pumpkin seeds sprinkled over the top. My family love these and they’re so good for them. Have put this down on my once a week menu though. Thanks.
