Asian Apple Chicken Salad

Ok, before you say anything, when you look at the picture, please forgive the fact that I forgot to add the apples before I took the picture.  Let’s just say when I realized it, it was too late, so I just ate the apple on the side.

::giggle::

But on the serious side, this salad is super easy, and it’s good warm or cold.  And it’s one of those things you can make ahead of time.  What I do is make a bunch of my Asian dressing, and marinate chicken and beef in 3.5-4 ounce serving sizes with 1 tbsp of my dressing.  I put in snack size zip locks and then freeze.  It’s a ready made stir-fry or salad starter!

The Asian dressing is good for salads, but also as a marinade, and the addition of cilantro kicks it up a notch.

I also didn’t have sesame seeds when I made this, so I toasted 60 calories worth of raw sunflower seeds, and they add a crunch the you get desperate for on P2.

This recipe is found in The First Step.  However, this a variation of the recipe found in there.

Enjoy!
