Chinese Chicken Salad

Chinese Chicken Salad: gorgeous, delicious, and healthy. The perfect meal!


I love making salads--they're so colorful and fun. About this time a year I shift from trying to make a soup/crock pot meal once a week to trying to make a salad once a week.

This salad has the works:

crunchy, bright orange carrots and sweet juicy mandarin oranges,


nutty sunflower seeds and refreshing sugar snap peas,


warm, moist chicken, and sweet red bell peppers (this time I had cherry tomatoes on hand and no red peppers, so they got substituted).


Want to make some? Here's the "recipe"

Something green: Washed and torn lettuce (I usually use Romaine)
Something orange: Chopped carrots
Something red: Chopped red bell peppers
Something yellow: Mandarin Oranges and/or yellow bell peppers
More green: sugar snap peas
Something purple: I often add red cabbage if I have it
Something crunchy: sunflower seeds, sliced almonds, fried wontons, the typical raman noodle stir-fried stuff, etc.
Some nice chicken cooked with your favorite Asian salad dressing or a mixture of soy sauce/ginger/honey.

And you're good-to-go! Bon appetite!

  4. Hi Jaime! I've been browsing your blog for about twenty minutes now :) and am loving it! I am going to add it to my side bar on my blog...and I don't follow that many blogs on my side bar! I am really enjoying your meal planning and menu ideas with links. Thanks! I am 16 weeks pregnant and have just recently gotten my appetite back so I am looking forward to cooking again.


    Take care,
