Can you believe you can have this wonderful whole meal salad for only 172 calories? You even get 19 grams of protein with that. Some reviewers said they added mandarin orange segments and some chow mein noodles (for crunch), so that adds a few more calories. Still at great tasting meal that is low calorie and healthy. Plus it goes together quickly if you already have cooked chicken on hand.
From the reviews:
“Versatile recipe with ability to improvise. I added some diced scallions, 1/4 cup of chopped cilantro, 1/2 cup of sliced cabbage, and about 1/4 cup of diced celery. Rather than snow peas, I added about 8 brocolli flowerettes. For the dressing, I added one minced garlic clove, and used regular sesame oil (rather than the “dark” as called for), and minced a fresh piece of ginger (rather than using “bottled” fresh ginger as called for). The next time I make this recipe, however, I will double the dressing amounts, put half of it aside to drizzle over the salad after it is assembled. I tend to make a larger quantity salad than the recipe called for since it is a one-meal dish by itself.”
The salad dressing recipe given is really something special. Some people say it makes the salad.
