As I mentioned last week life has been a little crazy and getting back to routine and cooking this week has been so good. I’ve been in the mood for fresh salads and I came up with this recipe last week which will be on the menu this week too.
A Cheater’s Oriental Chicken Salad
- Taylor Farms Asian Salad Mix
- 2 cups of Romaine, chopped
- 1 can of Mandarin Oranges, drained
- 8 ounces of grilled chicken breast, chopped
Mix all of the ingredients and enjoy!
That’s why I call it “A Cheater’s Oriental Chicken Salad”. The kit has savoy cabbage, green cabbage, carrots, celery, green onions, cilantro, wonton noodles, sliced toasted almonds, and Sesame Ginger Slaw dressing. I had initially planned to make an Oriental Chicken salad from a this recipe but when I saw this kit at Sam’s Club I saw an opportunity to save myself some work. The kit was only $2.48 so I feel like it was more than worth it.
This made a pretty large salad- I would say 3 entree-sized servings of salad. The total calories for the entire salad was 1255 so divided by 3 means it’s only 418 calories per serving.
Overall we really loved this easy salad and I hope you do too! Do you have any favorite salad recipes? I’d love to hear them in the comments below!
