Paleo Asian Chicken Salad

So I have been trying to post meals for 2 on Tuesday, but this salad from Paleogrubs actually makes 4 servings. You can eat it for supper one night and then pack it for lunch the next day!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cooked diced chicken breasts
  • 4 cups romaine lettuce, chopped
  • 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup carrots, julienned
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup blanched almonds, sliced
  • Sesame seeds, optional

For the vinaigrette

  • 1 clove garlic, pressed
  • 3 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp orange juice
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 2 tsp coconut aminos
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp freshly grated ginger
  • Dash of white pepper, optional

Directions:

  1. Whisk together the ingredients for the vinaigrette in a small bowl. Set aside.
  2. Add the chicken, lettuce, red onion, carrots, scallions, and almonds to a large salad bowl. Drizzle with the sesame vinaigrette and gently toss to coat.
  3. Serve immediately, sprinkled with sesame seeds if desired.
