For the Salad

  • 1 cabbage - whole head, chopped
  • 2 carrots - julienned
  • ½ cup slivered almonds
  • 1 cup green onions - chopped
  • 3 cups cooked shredded chicken
  • 1 tbsp seasame seeds

For the Dressing

  • ¼ cup grapeseed oil - or canola oil
  • cup white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 lemon - juiced
  • 2 teaspoon 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.
