Dang, it’s hot!!! This coming from a girl who grew up in Texas. The biggest difference is that I had an air conditioner growing up. Typically, the weather is so mild here in the Bay Area that there is no need for an AC, but it has been oppressively hot for several days now & yesterday I reached my boiling point (ha, get it?!?!). My boys were at a swim meet & I knew they would be hungry when they returned, but the thought of turning on the oven was out of the question…. nix on the grill too (can’t ask a hungry man to grill when he’s tired & hot!). Solution: salad with rotisserie chicken.
Asian Chicken Salad
- 3 ½ lbs Baby Bok Choy, chopped
- 2 Ramen Noodle packages, crunched into small pieces, discarding the flavor pack
- 4 Green Onions, diced (optional)
- ½ cup Sliced Almonds
- ¼ cup Sesame Seeds
- 1 Rotisserie Chicken, shredded
- ½ cup Butter, melted
- ½ cup Sugar
- ½ cup Canola Oil
- ¼ cup Cider Vinegar
- ¼ cup Soy Sauce
Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Combine wet ingredients well then toss everything together until evenly coated.
You can use this recipe as a main course or as a side & skip the chicken. This is a family favorite and I hope it becomes yours too! My mom gave me this recipe years ago while we still lived in Georgia so this dish has “staying” power.
