entree salad: thai chicken veggie salad

I love soft spring rolls loaded with chicken and crunchy vegetables. I’m sure I’m not alone in finding the rice paper wrappers to be rather, to put it nicely, “temperamental.” Want all the flavor and texture of a soft spring roll without having to deal with the wrappers? Try this Thai Chicken and Veggie Salad, complete with Peanut Dressing that mimics the traditional dipping sauce. It’s a quick, easy alternative.

Use Pre-Cooked Chicken for a Quick Lunch Solution

I created this recipe to throw together for a fast lunch, so I recommend using pre-cooked chicken. You can use leftover grilled chicken from another meal, or pick up some cooked chicken from the market.

You may prefer to cook the chicken at the same time you’re making your Thai Chicken Veggie Salad. If so, simply brown a chicken breast in a large skillet with 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken for 3 to 5 minutes on each side, browning thoroughly. Next, add in 1/4 cup of low sodium chicken broth and cover the pan with a lid, cooking for another 6 to 8 minutes until the chicken is cooked through. Then, set it aside to cool for 10 minutes. Finally, slice the chicken breasts into thin slices and top the salad mixture with the chicken.

Mimic a Spring Roll Dipping Sauce with this Peanut Dressing

When you make this peanut dressing for your salad, you’re using all the fantastic flavors found in a spring roll dipping sauce. The hoisin and orange juice give the dressing a sweet flavor, while the minced ginger and sriracha chili sauce give it some heat. Once you combine that with the salty soy sauce and earthy toasted sesame oil, you’ll have a perfectly well-rounded dressing.

Garnish the completed salad dish with chopped peanuts, cilantro, mint, and chopped green onions. Just like magic, you have a simple (yet complex) tasting salad!
