15 min. Asian Chicken Salad

We all have those days when there’s simply no time to cook, and that’s when a dish like this is pure gold. It’s a hearty main course salad bursting with color, variety, and plenty of crunch. But the best part is it comes together in about 15 minutes with no cooking involved.

But hey, no one needs to know that.
It’ll be our little secret.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rotisserie chicken, pre-washed romaine lettuce, and broccoli slaw mix are the secret ingredients. They make assembly of this salad quick and easy. A little chopping and  and you’re almost done. All that’s left is the dressing which comes together quickly in a food processor.
