For the Salad

  • 1 cabbage whole head, chopped
  • 2 carrots julienned
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  • 1 cup green onions chopped
  • 3 cups cooked shredded chicken

For the Dressing

  • 1/4 cup grapeseed oil or canola oil
  • 1/3 cup white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil plus more to taste
  • salt + pepper to taste


  • In a medium bowl whisk together all ingredients for the Sesame vinaigrette until completely combined. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl toss together all ingredients for the salad.
  • When ready to serve toss with desired amount of vinaigrette.


For this recipe, I used pre-cooked rotisserie chicken. However, poached boneless skinless chicken would taste just as delicious.
