For the Chicken


Salad ingredients

  • 1/2 cabbage shredded
  • 1/2 savoy cabbage shredded
  • 1 small carrot thinly julienned
  • 1 tbsp chopped cilantro
  • 3 tbsp cashews
  • 3 tbsp sliced almonds
  • ¼ cup wonton strips


Marinate the chicken strips

  • In a medium-sized bowl combine the marinade ingredients as followed: ginger, garlic, green onion, soy sauce, honey, olive oil, rice vinegar, and sesame oil. Whisk together until well blended, then set aside.
  • Cut the chicken breast into strips and place them in a bowl. Pour the marinade over the chicken and let it sit for at least 30 minutes or up to 2 hours.

Make the dressing

  • Meanwhile, combine the dressing ingredients as followed: ginger, garlic, soy sauce, honey, olive oil, rice vinegar, sesame oil, and sesame seeds. The dressing and marinade are very similar except the dressing doesn't have green onion, but has more honey and a few sesame seeds.

Cook the chicken

  • Once the chicken has marinated, remove it from the marinade and sprinkle the corn starch over it. Cook it for 3 minutes (or until golden brown) on each side on a greased skillet over high heat. After the chicken is fulled cooked and cooled down, cut into strips and set aside.

Combine all salad ingredients together

  • In a large bowl, combine both shredded cabbages, carrot, cilantro, cashews, almonds, and wonton strips. Then add in the chicken and last pour the dressing over the salad.


How long will this salad last in the fridge?

Keep the Chinese salad refrigerated for up to 3 days. After that, the dressing will soften the cabbage too much. Or you can keep the dressing separate and add it a little at a time. That way you can enjoy it for an entire week!
