Asian Chicken Salad (with a plug for the best store bought salad dressing I've ever tried!)



Salads are the best! I especially love them during summer because they keep me cool and feeling light. They can also be super easy to make with a little planning...which is great when you're on the go!  In order to be more consistent in my meal times I've been prepping a lot of food on Mondays.  Each week I buy a rotisserie chicken, a big container of mixed field greens and all the toppings I will need for the week. Then on Monday I chop them all up and put them in small containers in the fridge.  Then when I get ready for lunch I can just throw whatever toppings I want on top and I'm ready to go.

Lately, I've been using the Marzetti Simply dressed salad dressings and loving them.  The one I use for this salad is Ginger Sesame. Yum! At the store I found it in a small refrigerated section by all of the bagged salad mixes and such.  All of their dressing I've tried so far are really good. I love ginger anything and this salad really delivers.  Avocado and chicken make it really feeling too without feeling too heavy.  The cucumber makes it really refreshing even on a hot day :) Give this salad a try with this dressing or with your own favorite!
