Trick: Looking to save a little preparation time? Stop by your local grocery store and pick up a deli-roasted chicken. You can also swing by the salad bar and pick up some of your favorite pre-cut vegetables. That way when you get home, all you have to do is shred the chicken and toss it all together.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • 10 cups mixed salad greens
  • 1 cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 red pepper, thinly sliced
  • ½ red onion, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger root
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds

Instructions

In a large salad bowl, toss together chicken and next four ingredients.

In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, sauté ginger and garlic in the sesame oil until fragrant for about 30 seconds.

Stir in soy sauce, honey and red pepper flakes (if desired) and bring to a boil.

Pour over chicken mixture and toss to evenly coat. Divide between serving plates and garnish with sesame seeds.
