  • 3.5 ounces Kale shredded, about 1 small bunch
  • 16 ounces chicken cooked and shredded
  • 1 cup carrots grated
  • 4 ounces rice noodles cooked according to package directions
  • 2 scallions sliced
  • 1 avocado peeled, pitted and diced
  • 2 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • Asian Dressing for Serving

Instructions

  • Combine cabbage, kale, chicken, carrots and rice noodles in a large bowl. 
  • Toss with Asian Dressing. 
  • Top with scallions, avocado, and sesame seeds and serve.

Notes

Tips:
  • If you are making this ahead of time but don't plan on tossing it until the last minute, I would recommend tossing the rice noodles with a touch of olive oil to keep them soft.  Alternatively, you can store them in a container filled with water and drain at the last minute.
  • Easily make this a vegan Asian Salad by substituting cooked tempeh for the chicken. This Marinated Peanut Tempeh looks amazing.
  • Short on time?  Use a purchased salad dressing.  I really like Newman's own Sesame Ginger Dressing.
