Mandarin chicken salad

This delicious chicken salad is one of the quick and easy Chinese recipes that satisfy your craving for green lettuce, a nutritious and cool way to enjoy your summer or enjoy the Mandarin orange when it's citrus season.

If you want to make a salad with mandarin oranges, this recipe is one of my recommendations.

Ingredients:

  • Chicken breast or thighs -- 1 cup, skinless, boneless, shredded, cooked
  • Romaine lettuce -- 10 ounces
  • Oranges -- 4
  • Carrots -- 1/3 cup, shredded
  • Peanuts -- 1/3 cup, dry-roasted, whole or chopped
  • Crispy chow mein -- 1/4 cup, crispy wonton toppings work fine

For the dressing:

  • Vegetable oil -- 1/2 cup
  • Apple cider vinegar -- 1/4 cup
  • Low soldium soy sauce -- 3 tablespoons
  • Honey -- 1/2 tablespoon
  • Dark sesame oil -- 1 teaspoon
  • Garlic -- 2 clove, minced
  • Ginger -- 1/2 teaspoon, minced
  • Smooth peanut butter -- 1/4 cup
  • Salt -- 1 teaspoon
  • Ground black pepper -- 1/2 teaspoon

Directions:

  1. Peel the oranges and separate them into segments. You can remove the white membranes if you want to. But my grandmother taught me not to do it, because the membranes are good for your immune system according to Chinese medicine.
  2. Roughly chop the peanuts with knife if your prefer small pieces, or use a food processor.
  3. Put all the ingredients for the dressing together, whisk well until smooth.
  4. Toss together the all the main ingredients you prepared.
  5. Drizzle the salad dressing on top of the salad.
  6. Garnish it with crispy chow mein or wonton toppings.
  7. Enjoy!
