Thai Chicken Salad

Light, crunchy, and packed with Thai flavors, this salad is great for make-ahead lunches.  The Thai peanut dressing is lightened up with powdered peanut butter but is still full of flavor.



Salad Ingredients:

  • 1 cup cooked chicken, shredded
  • 4 cups shredded cabbage
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 cup diced cucumber
  • ⅓ cup fresh mint
  • ⅓ cup fresh Thai basil
  • 1 tbsp chopped peanuts


  • 2 tbsp peanut butter powder
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • ¼ tsp ginger


  1. Toss all salad ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. Put all dressing ingredients into a jar and shake really well.  It takes a little work to get that peanut butter powder all mixed in.
  3. Add dressing to the salad right before serving.  Garnish with more mint and lime slices.
