13109855145_17c16a5b1b_cIf I didn’t have a husband and children to feed, I’d eat a salad like this every night of the summer. The taste is similar to the Chinese Chicken Salad at a restaurant .

Yield :

  • Makes 4 servings .

Ingredients :

  • Salad dressing:
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh ginger or 1/2 teaspoon powder ginger
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 3 tablespoons toasted sesame oil

Preparation :

  • Combine all salad dressing ingredients, except for sesame seeds, and using only 1 tablespoon of soy sauce. Whisk until emulsified. Taste your dressing and add another 1 tablespoon of soy sauce, if desired, to make it saltier. Add 2 tablespoons sesame seeds to the dressing and mix them in.
  • Combine all salad ingredients in a large bowl, except for 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds and chicken. Add the salad dressing to the salad and toss – do not add all salad dressing at once: you might not need all of it. Add just enough salad dressing to coat the salad ingredients.
  • Serve the salad in the individual serving bowls and top with the remaining 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds and sliced chicken.
