Recipe for Thai Crunch Chicken Salad


  • Spicy Peanut Dressing
  • 1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
  • 6 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1-3 teaspoons of chili-garlic sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced ginger
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Cilantro Lime Dressing
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 cup minced red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 4 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • Salt
  • Fresh ground black pepper
  • Salad
  • 1 Head Napa cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups thinly sliced red cabbage
  • 1 cup pre-cooked, shelled edamame
  • 4 green onions, finely chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, julienned
  • 2 cups carrots, julienned
  • 1/2 cup loosely packed chopped cilantro
  • 3 chicken breasts, cooked and sliced very thin
  • 1/2-1 cup salted cocktail peanuts

Cooking Directions

Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan over medium/low heat. Heat until hot, but not boiling, and sugar is dissolved.

Pour mixture into a blender and blend until smooth about 20 seconds. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary. Cover and chill.

Cilantro Lime Dressing
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend on high for 20 seconds, or until cilantro is chopped fine, but not entirely pureed. Taste and adjust seasoning in necessary. Cover and chill.

Combine cabbages, edamame, green onions, red bell pepper, carrots, cilantro and chicken in a large bowl. Add enough spicy peanut dressing to lightly coat salad ingredients.

Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary. Plate and drizzle with cilantro-lime dressing and garnish with additional cilantro, green onions and peanuts. Enjoy!

This made enough for my family''s dinner (I have a few small eaters), a plate to share with my kiddie-corner neighbors and my lunch the next day.

I still have a lot of the cilantro-lime dressing and a little of the spicy peanut dressing leftover.
