Thai peanut dressing
- In a small bowl, whisk together all of the dressing ingredients. Season to taste with salt and pepper. If the dressing is too thick, you can add water to thin it out (try 1 teaspoon at a time, whisking after each).
- In a large bowl add chicken, carrots, celery, bok choy, cabbages, romaine lettuce.
- Toss the almonds and chow mein noodles in a saute pan with olive oil until golden and toasted and fragrant. Add the toasted almonds and chow mein noodles mixture to the salad mixture.
- Toss with Thai peanut dressing and season with salt and pepper to taste.
