Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • Using a rotisserie chicken makes this salad so easy. If you prefer you can always grill up your own chicken and add it as well. 
  • Chow mein noodles are another welcome addition to this salad if you want to add even more toppings. 
  • Feel free to add in other vegetables that you love. You can easily add cucumbers and cilantro for even more flavor. 
  • This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled. 
  • To create a vegetarian version of this salad, just omit the chicken. 

Storage

Once you combine the salad with the dressing you will want to enjoy it right away. Storing it will make the salad pretty soggy with the addition of the dressing.

This is a great salad to prepare ahead of time! Make the dressing and keep it in an airtight container. Prep the salad excluding the peanuts and oranges and place it in the fridge. Right before enjoying add the peanuts, oranges, and the dressing and then toss.
