Asian chicken salad with homemade ginger sesame dressing is a great, easy-to-throw-together salad for one of those days when you have too much spinach, some leftover chicken, and too many other odd veggies at your disposal. Combining all these ingredients together with a flavorful, sweet and sour Asian dressing turns this salad into a restaurant-quality addictive meal! It’s healthy, lean, and easy, and it takes only 30 minutes to prepare, at most. Highly recommended!
I love the concept of a chicken salad because it is great for putting any leftover chicken to good use, or utilizing that bland tasting, over-cooked, over-boiled chicken that you don’t want to eat. Any chicken will do here: boiled, fried, shredded, rotisserie chicken, etc.
All vegetables are finely chopped to ensure that you’re getting a little bit of everything with each bite. The ginger sesame dressing is out of this world and is very easy to make from scratch if you have basic Asian ingredients in your pantry. When made from scratch, it’s better than anything bottled up!
I also love how bright and colorful the salad looks, especially after you apply the dressing!
