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
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.
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.
