Paleo, Gluten Free, Dairy-Free, Soy-Free
This take on a traditional Chinese chicken salad is loaded with antioxidant-rich red and green cabbage and vitamin-packed grapefruit. Toasted cashews add crunch while a sesame and rice vinegar dressing bring it all together. Since prep and cook time are about even in this recipe, it’s best to get all the chopping and slicing done while you poach the chicken.
