Do your kids love helping out in the kitchen when you are cooking? Mine do! Especially if we are chopping up some salad. When I made this Asian Chicken Salad, my girls helped out with the chopping. They get me all nervous when it comes to chopping so we only use a butter knife for this.
The almonds add a bit of crunch to this leafy meal while the chicken gives more texture and a kick of flavor. My kids even like this salad so as a Mom that is a BIG deal.
What is the healthiest salad?
What you hear the word salad you automatically think oh healthy! But that’s not always the case. Depending on what you put on your salad will determine how healthy it is. The healthiest salad would be one that’s loaded with green leafy vegetables, has a good amount of lean protein, have some more fresh veggies or fruits like berries added to it. Most importantly get in the habit of skinny on croutons and store-bought salad dressings. Make your own healthy dressing that should be a simple combination of salt, pepper, lemons, vinegar, and olive oil.
