Thai Chicken Salad

Thai Chicken SaladPinitIt actually all started with a pizza. A delicious Thai Chicken Pizza.

And in an effort to save my appetite for Christmas Eve dinner, the Thai Chicken Pizza ingredients morphed themselves into a Thai Chicken Salad.

And it was a beautiful thing. 

I would eat this any day of the week, and for any length of time, but it’s especially perfect for post-Christmas eating.

My reasoning tells me that this extra healthy salad basically nullifies anything I’ve eaten over the last few days. Thank goodness.

Seconds, please!

Care to share your best Christmas gift, given or received?  I recieved a subscription to Eating Well magazine, a blanket from Pottery Barn, and a gift certificate for a weekend getaway.

And I gave a Keurig to my husband. Read: to myself.

  1. Love your blog and it just so happens I LOVE healthy recipes too! :)

    Just wondering if I can use all natural peanut butter in the thai dressing?

    Thanks for sharing.

    • Yup. It ‘s a pretty flexible recipe… I’d just reduce the amount of liquid if the dressing doesn’t look thick enough. Hope you like it!

  2. This sounds delicious! I absolutely love thai flavor combinations!

  3. This looks delish! I am a Thai pb sauce fiend! How many servings does this dressing make? Thank you for sharing! :)

    LOVING all of your recipes…especially the salads. I had back surgery 2 weeks ago and can’t cook because of no bending, stooping, and twisting. I’m now to where I can stand just long enough to put together a salad and if I can’t my husband helps me. Just love all of your fresh tastes:)
