(adapted from Good Things Utah 6/25/15)


Salad Ingredients

1 lb. chicken breasts, seasoned with salt and pepper and grilled; cut into bite size pieces

12 oz. broccoli slaw mix

12 oz. coleslaw mix

4 oz. snow peas or snap peas

1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped

4 green onions, chopped

2–4 plums, pitted and sliced

1/2 cup raw, unsalted cashews, lightly toasted


Sesame Dressing

1/2 cup sesame seed oil

1/4 cup Apple Cider Vinegar

1 tbsp. honey

1 clove (1 tsp.) garlic, crushed

1/4 tsp. ground ginger

2 tbsp. soy sauce

pepper to taste


What to do

Toss together salad ingredients, except cashews, in a large bowl. Prepare dressing by adding all the ingredients in a jar, put the lid on, and shake until everything is blended or pulse in a food processor. Pour the dressing over the salad and stir to evenly coat. Cover and set in the fridge to marinade for at least 15 minutes. Toss cashews into salad just before serving.
