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.
