This Asian Chicken Salad with Peanut Lime Dressing is a healthy and colorful way to eat the rainbow.



For the Salad

  • 1 small head Napa or savory cabbage finely chopped (about 4 cups)
  • 2 cup thinly sliced red cabbage
  • 1 thinly sliced red bell pepper
  • 1 thinly sliced orange bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup grated carrot
  • 2 cups cooked shredded chicken
  • 1/2 cup roasted salted peanuts
  • sliced jalapenos, optional

For the Peanut Lime Dressing

  • Peanut-Lime
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • Juice of one lime
  • 1 tablespoon rice or white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon chopped peeled ginger
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey


  1. In a large bowl add all of the salad ingredients. I like to layer them all so that they look pretty, but you just add them and give them all a toss – it’s up to you.
  2. To make the dressing, add all of the ingredients to a small mason jar, add the lid, and shake until well combined. If your peanut butter is cold or really thick I would use hot water (the 2 tablespoons called for) instead of cold or room temperature water.
