Did you ever have one of those days when you couldn't bear the thought of turning on a stove? The weather here is so very warm... But what to serve the FAM? Hey, how about a lovely Asian salad?
To omit using fried fingers, substitute meat pulled from a rotisserie bird. Use the rest of the meat for another meal and remember to save the bones for homemade stock.
Here's what you do to avoid firing up your own stove:
1 bag Asian slaw mix or broccoli slaw
1 bag sweet butter lettuce or spring mix
1 bag julienne carrots
8 oriental glazed, deli-cooked chicken fingers
1 can chow mein noodles
1/2 c. slivered almonds, toasted
1 small can mandarin noodles or 1 Fuji apple, cored and diced
1 bottle sesame ginger salad dressing
freshly ground pepper
Combine needed amount of slaw mix with carrots and lettuce in large salad bowl. Divide onto individual serving plates. Cut chicken into bite sized pieces. Allow everyone to build their own work of salad art using chicken, crunchy chow mein noodles, almonds and fruit. Apply dressing sparingly, then pepper liberally and enjoy!
