Asian Chicken Salad

This salad is bursting with so much flavour and healthy goodness! From nutrient-dense red cabbage, crispy romaine, edamame for some healthy fat, and a delicious crunch from chow mein noodles and almonds – this salad is packed with texture and taste. I added chicken for protein but you can easily make this a vegetarian dish by skipping the chicken altogether since this salad has a great dose of plant protein from almonds and edamame.  This chicken salad is a perfect meal during the week that can be assembled in less than 25 minutes. Using grocery store short cuts such as shredded carrots, store-bought rotisserie chicken, and frozen shelled edamame makes meal prep a breeze.  The dressing is simple and super fresh and you likely have all the ingredients on hand. Give it a try, you won’t regret it!
