Okay.. so I thought I'd do a food photo and recipe entry. This is one of my favorite salads and it photographs pretty well. It is my version of CPK's Thai Crunch Salad.
This is for 1 dinner serving and it is huge and roughly 520 calories. Or you can cut it in half and have it for 2 lunches.
Thai Peanut Chopped Chicken Salad Recipe:
Chicken Breast Chopped 1/2 cup (I usually buy the rotisserie chicken from Lynardi's)
Cabbage 1 1/2 cups (I like the shredded/chopped trio cabbage pack that includes green and and carrots)
Carrots 1/2 cup shredded
Cucumber 1/2+ cup chopped
Cilantro 1/4 cup chopped
Chive 1/8 to 1/4 cup chopped
Red Pepper 1/2 cup chopped
Sesame Seed 1 TBSP toasted/roasted (I usually buys these pre-toasted)
Peanut Halves 1/4 cup chopped
Trader Joe's Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette salad dressing 1/4 cup (in refrigerated section near lettuce at Trader Joe's); (Sometimes I will mix 1 part Trader Joes Cilantro dressing 2 parts Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette dressing if I don't feel like chopping cilantro and/or I want to reduce the calories a little so I can add Edemame.)
ADD 1/4 cup Edemame for an ADDITIONAL 60 Calories
