Ingredients
  

Salad:

  • I medium head Napa Cabbage chopped or a mix of your favorite salad greens (about 10 cups)
  • 1 + bunch scallions sliced including green tops (about 1-2 cups or to taste)
  • 1 bunch cilantro remove stems, chopped (about 2-3 cups, reserve some for garnish)
  • 1 roasted chicken torn into pieces
  • Asian Salad Dressing see below

Toasted Almonds

  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • 1-2 T. butter or olive oil

Other Optional toppings:

  • Oranges
  • Toasted Sesame Seeds

Instructions
 

  • Clean cabbage or salad greens and prep into bite-sized pieces.
  • Chop clean, trimmed scallions and cilantro. Reserve some for garnish.
  • Toss cabbage/greens, cilantro, and green onions.
  • Toast almonds by heating oil or butter in large skillet over medium low heat. Add almonds and brown. Watch them carefully since the almonds can burn rather quickly, especially if you're not cooking them over a lower heat. Let almonds sit until cool.
  • Top salad with almonds, chicken, and a garnish of cilantro. Drizzle with Asian salad dressing to taste.

Notes

We recommend organic ingredients when possible.
If you want to serve this salad vegetarian-style, ditch the chicken and just add some shelled edamame, seasoned chickpeas, or tofu and you've got a great meal!
