Ingredients for Slaw Salad:

1 (~12 oz ) package broccoli slaw

1 (8 oz) bag purple cabbage (3 cups cabbage)

2 cups cooked chicken breast, boneless, skinless, see shopping tip

2 cup pea pods, chopped

1 cup scallions sliced

½ cup Light Asian Salad Dressing such as Trader Joe’s Asian Style Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette or Ken’s Steak House Lite Asian Sesame Dressing, see shopping tip


Ingredients for Topping:

¼  cup La Choy Chow Mein noodles or any brand, optional


Instructions

1. In a large bowl, add all the ingredients for the slaw salad except the salad dressing and topping. Just before serving, toss with dressing. Divide among 4 dinner plates. Sprinkle each with 1 tablespoon of Chow Mein noodles and serve with chopsticks, if desired.

Makes 4 main course salads (1 serving, about 3 cups each)


Shopping Tips

One of my very favorite Asian style dressings is Trader Joe’s Asian Style Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette. It doesn’t say Light or Lite on the bottle but it is. It’s really delicious!!! One 2 tablespoons serving has 70 calories and 4 grams of fat.
Another to try is Ken’s Steak House Lite Asian Sesame Dressing. It also has for 2 tablespoons 70 calories and 4 grams of fat.


Vegetarian Tip

To make vegetarian and add protein, you can substitute the chicken with shelled edamame. It taste great this way or just leave out the chicken and edamame and you’ll still love this salad.

I think the crunch is so important for feeling satisfied after you've eaten. I think crunchy is one of my few true cravings.
