Hi everyone! I hope that everyone is doing well. I am Deanna from Gloriously Made and am sharing a delicious salad with all of you today here at Memories by the Mile.
I am in full spring mode over here in South Texas and starting to want all things fresh, light, and delicious! Today I am sharing with you an Asian Sesame Chicken Salad that will satisfy all those cravings.
For the dressing I like to add a couple of ingredients to an already made Asian Sesame dressing. I love Ken’s lite Asian dressing! Delicious! So I use half a cup of the dressing and add 2 Tbsp lime juice and a 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes to give it a little heat, but not too much. Make the dressing and set aside.
When I make this salad I love to buy a lemon pepper rotisserie chicken from our local grocery story. They have a lot of different seasoned rotisserie chickens and you could use any of them, but my favorite is the lemon pepper. While you are taking the chicken breasts off the bone blanch your carrots in boiling water for about 3 minutes. You want to only cook them briefly because you want for your carrots to still be firm and not too soft. Add your peas for an additional 2 minutes. Remove from heat, drain, and run under cold water to stop the cooking process.
Cut your cucumber and radishes up really thin. Aren’t they pretty??? I love fresh vegetables!!
- ½ cup lite Asian sesame dressing
- 2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
- ¼ tsp dried crushed red pepper flakes
- 1 (6oz) package of sliced carrots
- 1 (4oz) package frozen or fresh sugar snap peas
- ½ of a cucumber, thinly sliced
- 3 radishes, thinly sliced
- 2 rotisserie chicken breasts, sliced
- 2 Tbsp, sesame seeds
- Combine the Asian Sesame dressing, lime juice, & red pepper flakes in a small bowl. Set aside.
- In boiling water cook carrots for 3 minutes. Add the peas and cook both an additional 2 more minutes. Drain and run under cold water to stop the cooking process. You want for the vegetables to still be crisp. Drain.
- Place carrots, peas, cucumber, and radishes on a plate and top with chicken. Drizzle the dressing on top of your salad and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
Place all of your cooked and fresh vegetables on a plate. Add your sliced chicken breast to the top and drizzle your Asian Sesame dressing on top. Garnish with sesame seeds.
I hope that you love this salad like we do! It’s perfect for a spring or summer lunch!
Have a terrific weekend and come over to Gloriously Made and say hi!
