Keeping things simple in a not so simple world

Chinese Chicken Salad

Leave a comment

It is humid here and hot.  Full-on summer, especially now that it is July.   Cooking is not my favorite thing to do in the heat.

Enter:  Chinese Chicken Salad

1 large head of cabbage, shredded
a large bunch of snow peas, cut in half
4-5 plums
Shredded chicken, about 2 cups (hint: buy a rotisserie chicken at the store or used TJ’s organic canned chicken.)
Alternatively, you could use some flavored tofu.

Mix together.

In a jar, mix together 1/4 cup grapefruit juice, 1 tablespoons sesame seed oil, 1 tablespoon rice vinegar and a pinch of salt. Pour over salad, mix and serve.

I like the plums and grapefruit option instead of oranges and juice. They are less sweet and make the perfect pairing to the snow peas and chicken.
