  • 1/2 head of green cabbage chopped
  • 1 cup shredded red cabbage
  • 2 cups skinless rotisserie chicken chopped
  • 4 scallions thinly sliced (green ends only)
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 1 cup canned mandarines drained
  • 1/2 cup chow mein noodles La Choy- crispy

Asian Dressing

  • 1/4 cup olive oil or oil of choice
  • 3 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 3 tsp coconut aminos or soy sauce
  • 2 tsp sesame seed oil
  • 1.5 tsp ginger grated


  • Cut the head of green cabbage in half saving half for later use. Thinly slice then chop into bite-sized pieces and place in a large bowl.
    Add shredded red cabbage and toss to combine.
    Remove skin from rotisserie chicken and chop breast meat- set aside.
    Thinly slice scallions (green portions only) and add to the bowl
    Drain juices from mandarines and add to the bowl
    Add chicken, sliced almonds and dressing - toss to combine.
    Add the salad to bowls and top with chow mein noodles


This salad can be made with lots of variations and turns out well.  If you prefer a vegetarian version adding shelled edamame adds a boost of protein without the chicken.  The coconut aminos give a similar flavor and lower salt option to soy sauce but the real thing works as well.

No-Cook Summer Meal

It’s August and here in the Northeast we have been enduring a stretch of hot and humid weather. While part of me is embracing the warm summer nights, I will admit there is also a part that struggles to think about turning on the oven or stove to make dinner and risk making the kitchen even a degree hotter. On nights like these this White Bean and Tuna Salad makes a great no-cook meal. The beans and tuna provide a great source of protein and the tomatoes could not be better this time of year!
