This made a great lunch. I added carrots, cilantro and peanuts, and skipped the sugar in the dressing. I also subbed sesame oil for the oil and sesame seeds (just a drizzle). Served it with baked tortilla chips for a healthier crunch (sounds odd, but it worked well actually!). Thanks!
Nice salad, made it just for one, turned out quite nice although I wasn't too fond of the dressing, too sweet for me, but the salad was good, love the crunch of the water chestnuts and the nutty taste of the sesame seeds. I did add salt and fresh ground pepper and used a plum tomato for garnish. Thanks for sharing.
A very nice refreshing salad. The family really enjoy the light but filling meal on a hot spring day. I served this Chicken Salad with other salad vegetables such as red pepper, sliced snow peas, grated carrot, sliced cucumber and cherry tomatoes. Just delicious!
