Chinese Chicken Salad with a Twist: Creamy Soy Dressing Delight











This Chinese Chicken Salad recipe with Creamy Soy Dressing is a quick, delicious, and healthy meal, perfect for any day of the week. Ready in just 30 minutes, it's packed with flavor and nutrients!


Step 1: Prepare the Dressing

Begin your salad adventure by creating the heart of the flavor: the creamy soy dressing. Simply grab a large bowl and whisk together 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon of soy sauce, and 1 teaspoon of finely minced ginger root until perfectly blended. The fusion of these ingredients brings a uniquely tangy and creamy flavor that serves as the base of your salad's dressing.
Pro Tip: Ensure the ginger is finely minced for an even distribution of flavor.

Step 2: Toss in the Ingredients

Once your dressing is ready, it’s time to add the body to the salad. To the same bowl, add 1 pound of cooked and shredded chicken breast, 1/2 cup each of trimmed snow peas and chopped peppers, 1/2 cup of shredded carrots, and 1/4 cup of sliced green onion. Toss everything together until the ingredients are well coated with the creamy soy dressing. This step marries the crisp vegetables with the tender chicken, creating a harmonious blend of textures and flavors.
Pro Tip: Gently toss to keep the vegetables crisp.

Step 3: Serve It!

For the final touch, serve your salad over two cups of torn spinach leaves. This not only adds a beautiful greenery base but also packs in an extra layer of nutrients. The spinach's slightly earthy taste complements the zesty and creamy dressing, tying all the elements of the salad together into one delightful dish. This salad is not only a feast for the taste buds but also for the eyes with its array of colors and textures.
Pro Tip: Chill the plates before serving for a refreshing touch.
