This cold chicken coleslaw salad is wonderful, because you prepare it ahead of time and mix it up just before serving. It's also an easy salad to travel with.

I gave this 4 stars cause I prefer it the way I make it. I add 1 T. soy sauce to the dressing and use 2 packets of sweetener with regular white vinegar and regular vegetable oil. I also add a bucnh of chopped green onions to the salad. I toast the almonds along with some sesame seeds. This recipe has made the rounds with my friends and has gone all over the country by now! Thanks. Read More

I broiled the chicken breasts. With my salad mix I used lightly chopped cashews instead of almonds. I added chopped green onions and slivered canned water chestnuts. Splenda was the perfect sweetener for the dressing and I gave the dressing a splash of soy sauce. Thank you for a fast recipe. It's perfect for work lunch. Read More

Okay so it's not as good as the Chinese chicken salad you make from scratch but for a quick and easy recipe this one is remarkably tasty. My family made me promise to make it again (and again) and that's a promise I'll be happy to keep! Read More

This is my middle son's very favorite salad. So much so he requested that it be served at his graduation open house last June where it went over famously! The only change I made was substituting white vinegar and sugar for the called for items. No difference noted! Read More

We loved this recipe. I leave out the chicken and sweetener and serve as a light summer side dish. It is so easy to put together. Maybe it should be save as Chinese Cabbage Salad without the chicken? Read More

The taste was really quite good. Needed more of the dressing though so next time I'll multiply the ingredients a bit and make it less vinegary. But the crunch and taste were really great esp. since I added water chestnuts per others' reviews. I'm keeping this one in my recipe box. Read More
