Got some chicken leftover from last night’s dinner? Shred it and add it with cabbage, green onions and cilantro, and whip up a quick peanut dressing!


Serves: 4

Prep time: 20 minutes


  • 6 cups shredded cabbage
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded chicken breast
  • 1 large carrot, grated
  • 1/4 cup chopped peanuts
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 avocado, halved, seeded, peeled and diced

For the dressing:

  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon sugar, or more, to taste


1. To assemble the salad, place cabbage in a large bowl; top with chicken, carrot, peanuts, green onions, cilantro and avocado.

2. To make the dressing, whisk together peanut butter, soy sauce, vinegar, lime juice, sugar and 2 tablespoons water in a small bowl. Pour the dressing on top of the salad and gently toss to combine.

    Looks delicious! I’m not a fan of raw cabbage…would it work okay if I sauteed it a little at first and then combined it with remaining ingredients?

    Absolutely delicious. Made as directed except I forgot the avocado. It’s on the counter needing another purpose now. This combination tasted a lot like the Vietnamese Chicken Salad wraps at Pei Wei without the rice wrap and noodles. Will definitely make again.

    Made for a group of ladies. Had to substitute PB & peanuts with Cashew butter/Cashews. Everyone loved it and had seconds, thirds! 😉
