Dressing:

4 green onions, finely chopped
1-1/2 tablespoons ginger paste

In a small bowl, mix all the dressing ingredients together, or combine in a jar with a tight-fitting lid and shake vigorously. For the salad, combine shredded rotisserie chicken, mixed salad greens, shredded cabbage (use coleslaw mix in produce section), sliced cucumber, and thinly sliced red onion. Pour dressing over the salad and thoroughly mix to ensure everything is evenly coated with dressing. Add salt to taste and sprinkle toasted sesame seeds over top. Devour.

Rotisserie chicken should be declared a ‘miracle food’. My grocery has started selling just rotisserie breasts too …

sounds wonderful. Is the ginger paste that Asian chili paste?

the salad looks great — I hope you don’t mind a question. I always get confused with sesame oil and the toasted sesame oil.

Which one did you use? Is it the darker stuff? Can you tell I’m confused!

Anonymous – I used toasted. Toasted sesame oil has a richer, more pronounced flavor and is a great sourse of Vitamin B and iron. Hope you try it out!
