Lemon Garlic Chopped Thai Chicken Salad
I adapted this salad from Pinch of Yum with the ingredients I had on hand. It originally called for shrimp & lime which I substituted with lemon & chicken. After devouring our salads my husband and I both agreed this was our new favorite salad. I’ve been trying to think up more occasions to make it. You must try it! The dressing is amazing.
Ingredients, Chopped Thai Chicken Salad:
    For the Garlic Lemon Dressing:
    • ½ cup olive oil
    • ¼ cup white wine vinegar
    • juice of one lemon
    • 2 tablespoons water
    • 1 tablespoon honey
    • 2 cloves garlic
    • 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
    • 1/4 tsp. crushed mint
    • 1/4 tsp. parsley
    • 1/2 tsp. salt
    For the Chicken
    • 3/4 lb. chicken
    • salt
    • crushed mint
    • parsley
    • garlic powder

    • 2 cups edamame, shelled and cooked
    • ¾ cup cashews
    • optional: wonton strips, diced carrots
  1. Sprinkle seasonings over raw chicken breast. Heat a sautee pan to medium high. Once pan is hot pour oil into pan. Quickly place seasoned chicken breasts into hot pan.
