asian chicken salad with creamy sesame dressing paleo recipe

Salad Ingredients
 1/4 cup almond slivers, lightly toasted
 2 naval oranges, peeled and sliced into segments
 4 cups pre-packaged coleslaw mix
 3 cups shredded chicken (rotisserie recommended)
 1 cup shredded carrots
 1 red pepper, seeded and sliced into thin strips
 1 bunch green onions, chopped
 1 avocado, pitted and diced
 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
 Sesame seeds, to taste
 Salt & Pepper, to taste
Creamy Sesame Dressing Ingredients
 1/4 cup paleo mayo
 1/4 cup avocado oil or olive oil
 1/4 cup rice vinegar
 2 Tbsp coconut aminos
 1 clove garlic, pressed
 2 tsp sesame oil
 1-2 tsp raw honey (optional, but highly recommended)
 1/2 tsp ground ginger
 Pinch of red pepper flakes

1

To toast the almond slivers, preheat your oven to 350ºF. Spread slivers out on a sheet pan and bake until lightly toasted, about 3-4 minutes. (Keep an eye on them while toasting! These can easily burn - pull them out when they're golden.)

2

Slice oranges and cut away flesh from the peel. Slice into segments and set aside.

3

Pit and dice avocado. Sprinkle with lemon or lime juice if available to help prevent oxidation, and set aside.

4

Next make the dressing by simply whisking all the dressing ingredients together. Makes about 1 cup. (Set aside a little of the dressing and refrigerate if you plan on saving a portion of the salad as a meal prep.)

5

Finally assemble the salad. Plate oranges, coleslaw mix, carrots, bell pepper, green onions, avocado and chicken. Sprinkle with toasted almonds, cilantro and a few dashes of sesame seeds.

6

Top with dressing and enjoy!
