Ingredients for Asian Chicken Salad
- Ramen noodles: I forgot how good ramen noodles are! You don’t use that salty packet that comes with them so you can just toss that, it’s just the noodles. If you don’t have ramen you can also use rice noodles or a gluten free variety works too.
- Chicken: You need 2 cooked chicken breasts for this recipe.
- DOLE® Fridge Pack Mandarin Oranges in Fruit Juice: They are made with all-natural fruit! The packaging is BPA-free, and you can find them near the canned fruit section at your local grocery store!
- Coleslaw mix: You can find this near the lettuce at the grocery store. You want a mixture of cabbage and carrots. You can make your own by combining shredded cabbage (I used green and purple) and matchstick carrots!
- Edamame: You can find shelled edamame beans in the frozen section at the grocery store.
- Green onions and sliced almonds: They both bring a nice texture and flavor to the Asian chicken salad.
- The dressing: Combine all the ingredients for this dressing in a small bowl, and whisk until well combined! It’s made up of avocado oil, rice vinegar, soy sauce, and some of the juice from the DOLE® Fridge Pack.
This Asian chicken salad with ramen does well in the fridge overnight; it doesn’t get soggy because of the light dressing. You can pack it for work or meal prep for the week! A great way to start the new year is with a plan to stay organized and have healthy options around you!
