Delicious Thai chicken salad recipe

This salad is perfect for those hot summer days.... Which is exactly what you need for these summer days lately... For a heartier salad as a main dish, you could add more chicken, or even some cooked shrimp.

We have been making this salad for special functions for years, if you like it spicier, just add more chili oil, or add some chili pepper flakes.

The Dressing is also good just tossed with noodles and chicken or shrimp, either hot or cold.

Hope you enjoy!

Thai Chicken Salad 

Dressing:( I double or triple this)
1 ½ T. peanut butter
2 T. sugar
2 T. soy sauce
1 T. cilantro
1 T. green onion-chopped fine
2 ½ T. salad oil
½ t. sesame oil
½- 1 t. ground red pepper
1 t. white or rice vinegar


Quantities are not set, we just buy the ingredients, and fill the size bowl that is needed to feed the amount of people that are present. The Napa Cabbage gives this salad a nice crunchy texture.

Nappa cabbage,  green leaf lettuce, and or romaine lettuce or combination
shredded carrots
Chinese pea pods
Bean sprouts- fresh or canned
water chestnuts-1 can sliced
red onions thinly sliced, or chopped
1 pkg. Fresh Chinese noodles, cooked and cooled, cut to manageable size
2 cup cooked chopped chicken
sesame seeds
mandarin oranges

Mix dressing ingredients together and completely chill to set the flavors, several hours.
Make salad and toss together,  chill.
You can put dressing on whole salad or let each person use amount wanted. we like to have extra because it is so delicious. 

You can also break up pkg. of dry Ramen noodles and sprinkle on top for an extra crunch.

Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.....
