  • I buy a bag of shredded carrots and broccoli slaw from Trader Joe’s and use frozen snow peas and dethaw them and just add them whole to the salad. All the vegetables can be cut up the day before and you can make the vinaigrette the day before as well.

  • salt and freshly ground pepper

  • 2 cups shredded broccoli slaw or coleslaw
  • 2 heads romaine lettuce, chopped
  • 2 carrots, shredded
  • 1 red pepper cut in thin strips
  • 2 cups frozen snow peas, dethawed, or fresh snow peas, blanched
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 4 thinly sliced green onions
  • 2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken, or grilled chicken
  • ¼ cup chopped roasted peanuts

Whisk together the vinegar, peanut butter, ginger, soy sauce, honey, sesame oil, and canola oil in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper, and taste for seasoning.
