Paleo, Whole30 Asian Chopped Salad July 13, 2018

We are in the middle of June here in Missouri and as soon as you step outside the heat will take your breath. When it is so hot outside, I always crave cold summer salads. This Asian Chopped Salad is so light and refreshing it is the perfect lunch or dinner on those hot summer days. Not only is it delicious, but it is Whole30, Paleo, gluten and dairy free.

The dressing adds so much flavor and pairs lovely with the chicken and oranges. The mixture of the cashew butter along with the toasted sesame seed oil, coconut aminos and dates gives it a savory and sweet taste. This dressing can also serve as a marinade on chicken, pork and even shrimp.

Feel free to add whatever veggies you would like to your salad, but I find that when I keep it simple, it tastes so much better. Eloise, my 3 year old isn’t a big fan of salads, so when I make this dish I will deconstruct it for here in a kid plate so it isn’t overwhelming. I will tear the chicken into bite size pieces with a little Asian dressing on the side for dipping, a side of orange, a slice of cheese and some kind of steamed veggie and. She LOVES the dressing so much that I caught her licking her plate. If you are needing to beat the heat this summer, try out this yummy salad that the whole family will love.
