One Ginormous Serving of Oriental Chicken Salad

Dieting & feeling hungry?! This salad will do the trick!
This is one of my favorite go to salads when trying to lose a few of those dang pesky pounds that sneak up on me! This salad is so ginormous, it always leaves my belly nice and full! The best part besides it being quick, tasty, and a healthy meal is it is only 315 calories!!

Oriental Chicken Salad
3 ounces cooked chicken, diced*
3-4 cups cabbage, thinly sliced or shredded
1 carrot, shredded
1-2 green onions, chopped (throw as little or as much as you like in)
4 tablespoon Newman's Own Low Fat Sesame Ginger Dressing
1-2 tablespoons of slivered almonds, toasted (optional)
a splash of rice wine vinegar (optional)
you can also add Mandarin oranges, but I don't like them so I left them out!

Combine all ingredients into a bowl & toss to coat. That's it! You can also simplify it by buying rotisserie chicken and a bag of coleslaw mix.

Serves 1 ginormous serving or a couple of servings

* I have cooked my chicken several different ways with this recipe. I have seasoned it with Mrs. Dash or McCormick Chicken Season. I have also marinated it in the salad dressing and then cooked it.
