Top this with a couple tablespoons of toasted sesame seeds for a little extra crunch.
Vietnamese Chicken Salad
This cleansing salad is the perfect healthy work lunch—just be sure to pack your dressing on the side. If you’re doing the three day anti-bloat plan, use leftover chicken from the ginger turmeric chicken bowl; if not, rotisserie chicken works just as well.
for the salad:
1 ½ cups shredded chicken breast
3 cups finely chopped romaine lettuce
¼ cup chopped cilantro + extra for garnish
2 grated carrots
2 Persian cucumbers, cut into half moons
for the dressing:
¼ cup fish sauce
¼ cup fresh lime juice
1 medium shallot, finely minced
¼ teaspoon chili flakes, or to taste
5 teaspoons coconut nectar or sugar
1. Combine all the salad ingredients in a large bowl.
2. Whisk together the dressing ingredients, then toss with the salad.
3. Serve with a little extra cilantro on top.
