This Thai chicken salad with peanut dressing is so fresh, bright, and easy to make! Super refreshing and chilled for a hot summer day!
Prep Time: 20 mins
Total Time: 20 mins
Serves: 3-4 servings
1 bag coleslaw or broccoli slaw mix (I use ½ and ½ for a great mix!)
2 grilled chicken breasts, cooked and sliced
1/4 cup scallions chopped
1 red bell pepper chopped
1/2 cup chopped peanuts
Small handful fresh cilantro chopped (optional but recommended)
Small handful fresh basil sliced thin or torn (optional)
Salt & pepper to taste
Lime wedge, garnish
5 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 tablespoon agave
1/2 teaspoon pure sesame oil, a little goes a long way
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon fresh ginger grated
3 tablespoons water or more as needed
Add the dressing ingredients to a medium-sized bowl and whisk together until smooth. Taste and adjust (e.g. add more lime juice or honey). If your dressing comes out really thick (peanut butter brands can vary), add even more water than suggested.
Prep all the salad ingredients and them add to a large bowl. Toss with the dressing and serve immediately. Add your grilled chicken on top. You can serve your chicken warm or cold! Doesn’t matter because it is fantastic either way! Season with salt & pepper as needed. Squeeze fresh lime for a nice citrus tang!
NOTE: Remove chicken to create a vegetarian option
