Easy Grilled Chicken Salad

Lime Dressing:
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
8 Tablespoons honey
4 teaspoons dijon mustard
2 garlic cloves, minced
½ tsp fresh black pepper
½ tsp sea salt

Peanut Sauce:
4 Tablespoons peanut butter
4 Tablespoons hot water
4 Tablespoons soy sauce (low sodium is best)
2 teaspoons sesame oil
2 teaspoons ground ginger

1 bag mixed lettuces
1 large carrot, julienned
1 can of mandarin oranges, drained
2 grilled chicken breasts, sliced thin
crunchy noodles (optional)

Whisk all the lime dressing ingredients in a small bowl. Set aside.

In a separate bowl combine all the ingredients for the peanut sauce. Mix well and set aside.

Rinse the lettuce and dry thoroughly (I use a salad spinner). Combine the lettuce, carrots, mandarin oranges and chicken in a large bowl. Pour in the lime dressing and toss. Divide the salad among four salad plates. Drizzle each salad with the peanut sauce. Top with some crunchy noodles, if desired. Serve immediately.

    This is a good recipe for me to try these new vegan “chicken” strips I bought. This could be a good vegan dish!
