Rainbow Chicken Salad Recipe

Super easy to make and absolutely delicious. This salad is full of vitamins, a huge host of raw veggies and healthy protein. For a vegan option just omit the chicken!

Salad Ingredients

  • 2 chicken breasts, shredded (for vegan option just omit the chicken, option to add tofu as well!)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1tbsp soya sauce
  • 3 cups thinly sliced asian cabbage (option to use white cabbage or salad leaves as well)
  • 2 cups thinly sliced purple cabbage
  • 1 large carrot, shredded
  • 1 bundle green onions, thinly sliced on an angle
  • 1 yellow pepper (red or green works too!)

Dressing

  • 4 Tbsp soya sauce (or option to use coconut aminos, we usually get gluten free soya sauce)
  • 3 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 3 Tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 2Tbsp Honey
  • 1 Tbsp fresh grated ginger 
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced

Garnish

  • 2 Tbsp sesame seeds, slightly toasted
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds, slightly toasted

Instructions

  1. Put your chicken, olive oil and soya sauce into a pressure cooker. Put on medium heat for 3 whistles. Remove steam and allow to cool. Once cooled, take two forks and shred the chicken.
  2. In the meantime, combine all dressing ingredients. You can put them all in a jar and shake them or smash them together in a bowl with a spoon or whisk.
  3.  Shred all of your veggies and toss them together in a bowl. Add the shredded chicken as well.
  4. On medium heat put your sesame seeds and almonds on a pan and toast until lightly brown (3-5 min)
  5. Add your nuts and seeds to the salad and pour the dressing over. Toss to combine. Flavour with pepper if you like. Serve immediately.
