Starting with the Cabbage
This incredible Asian salad is made with not one, not two but three varieties of cabbage and lettuce to give you the best texture and flavor experience! I use about ½ a head of red cabbage, ½ a head of Napa cabbage and 1 large head of lettuce. For the cabbage, first peel away the outer leaves to expose the clean and fresh layers inside. Then, grab a sharp knife and thinly slice the cabbage into strips. For the lettuce, wash the leaves first, then slice into thin strips as well.
I recommend assembling the salad in an extra-large bowl, so you have enough room to toss everything together!
All the Best Fillings!
No Asian Chicken Salad would be complete without a load of incredible fillings! For my video recipe, I went with a combination of grated carrots, chopped green onions, freshly chopped cilantro, edamame beans, canned mandarins, and sliced almonds. Feel free to add even more fillings and toppings! I also recommend sliced cucumber, sliced avocado, broccoli, sliced bell pepper or even bean sprouts!
Top the completed salad with crispy wonton strips or crispy noodles!
The Best Teriyaki Chicken!
I make my delicious Asian salad recipe with an equally incredible and juicy teriyaki chicken! I have a separate video recipe and post for this delicious recipe! I use large chicken breasts marinated in a teriyaki marinade. The chicken is fried, then finished in the oven, resulting in super juicy chicken breasts. The chicken is then glazed in a homemade teriyaki sauce.
I recommend making my teriyaki chicken first when making this salad recipe. Just keep it covered and warm while you’re chopping and prepping the salad ingredients.
Easy Sesame Dressing
To bring everything together and add the best flavor, I use an easy, homemade salad dressing for my Asian Chicken Salad! It comes together in just a minute! It’s made with soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame seed oil, honey, garlic, ginger and sesame seeds. Just combine all the ingredients in a small measuring cup or bowl and whisk together briefly. Once you have the salad ready, pour the dressing over the salad and use two large spoons to toss everything together!
Add the crispy wonton strips and sliced chicken on top of the salad.
Make Ahead Instructions
Want to enjoy this salad but later? It’s super easy to do food prep with this recipe. I recommend placing all the salad ingredients into a large bowl and keep it covered and refrigerated. Do not add the dressing or crisps until ready to serve. The dressing will make the lettuce soft after about an hour. You can also make the chicken ahead of time and reheat it when ready to enjoy with the salad!
