Thai Chicken Salad


This is a recipe that I sort of just made up. I had something like this somewhere, and I loved it, so I came home and experimented until I ended up with this super tasty salad.

Salad Ingredients:
1/2 head cabbage, shredded
1 head romaine, shredded
2 carrots, grated
1 bell pepper, julienne
1 c. snow peas, julienne
5 scallions, chopped
1 c. fresh bean sprouts
1/4 c. cilantro, chopped
1 c. cubed cooked chicken

Dressing Ingredients:
2 T. rice vinegar
2 T. fresh lime juice
1 t. fresh ginger
1 t. chile garlic sauce
2 T. peanut sauce (I use House of Tsang brand)
1 T. creamy peanut butter
1 T. tahini
2 T. brown sugar
Salt & Pepper to taste
Canola oil (thin out to right consistency)

I know that it's a lot of ingredients, and you may not have them all in your pantry, so go ahead and substitute! Use any hot sauce for the chile garlic sauce, and a little extra peanut butter & lime for the peanut sauce. I hope you'll try it, because you'll love it!
