Recipe Notes

* You can make salad ahead, but I would dress it right before serving for the crispiest texture. Leftovers are still great, but the cabbage gets less crunchy.

*Use chicken that has basic seasonings like salt and pepper. I've found that chargrilled, or overly spiced chicken interferes with the rest of the flavors.

*Trader Joe's Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette can be found in the refrigerated produce section. This is a mildly spicy dressing. If you don't have access to a Trader Joe's or have a different preference, use your favorite peanut dressing or sauce instead.

*Ingredient amounts are just guidelines. This is another recipe I never measure, I just cut everything up and throw it in a bowl just as you would for most salads.
