Chicken Salad With Thai-Flavored Dressing

Chicken Salad With Thai-Flavored Dressing


"With rotisserie chickens so readily available, it's easy to buy a pre-roasted bird and pull the meat off the bones for use in recipes that would otherwise likely be too complicated for a weeknight meal. A little shredding and chopping is all it takes to serve up this delicious Thai-flavored chicken salad."

I enjoyed this salad- quick, simple, tasty & healthy. As a personal preference I replaced the peanuts with toasted cashews- toasting the nuts is a must, or the flavour is lost. I loved how low-c...
