Sometimes nothing satisfies like a fresh light crunchy salad, and I am always on the lookout for an easy no fuss variation on the usual “lettuce and tomato.”   This Asian Chicken Salad is so simple and delicious, and when I tried it for a quick Sunday evening meal, my hubby’s words after eating it were “stupendous” (I think he liked it)!

I modified it a tiny bit to suit our family’s tastes, and here is what you need to make it:

This amount served three of us with a little leftover. It was light and crunchy and sweet.
I would also like to try this with a teriyaki dressing.

  1. Yum! I am going to try this. I think I will make a vinaigrette with sesame oil, rice wine vinegar and some fresh ginger to toss.

  4. This looks yummy and I will try this soon! not sure what tortilla strips are – certainly not something I could buy here in Australia, but I think I can adapt it to use fried noodles or omlette strips, which is what I thought they were until I read the recipe.

  5. Hi Margo,
