2 lbs grilled chicken

3 carrots

4 c chopped greens, washed and dried

2 c purple cabbage 

2 peppers - red, yellow or orange

1 cucumber

1/2 red onion

Honey roasted peanuts

 

Dressing ingredients:

4 Tbl soy sauce

5 tea sesame oil

2 Tbl rice wine vinegar

6 Tbl honey

3/4 c vegetable oil

1 lime juice & zest

1 c peanut butter

4 tea minced garlic

2 T minced ginger

1 bunch cilantro

1 tea kosher salt

4 tea sriracha sauce

6 T water

*I recommend making the dressing ahead of time. It’s simple but it has a lot of ingredients. There is absolutely no substitute for it, it is incredible.  It keeps in teh fridge well so I make a lot and use it for a couple weeks on salads and noodles or whatever you can dream up. You just add everything to the blender & blend and walls it’s done!

Cook noodles, rinse and toss with olive oil so they will not stick.

Grill and slice chicken.

Shred carrots. Chop all the rest of the veggies. Combine in a big bowl. Serve with dressing and top with honey roasted peanuts. CRAZY GOOD!
