Chinese Chicken Salad with Creamy Soy Dressing

This is an old Weight Watchers recipe, with a few minor changes.  You could put leftover chicken to excellent use in this tangy, creamy chicken salad.  Today I am using a can of the Kirkland chicken breast chunks instead.  If you don't like spinach you could use Bibb lettuce or a mixture of any leafy greens in its place.

Chinese Chicken Salad with Creamy Soy Dressing
Makes 2 servings
  • 1/4 cup fat-free mayonnaise
  • 1/2 Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tsp ginger root, freshly grated
  • 8 ounces cooked boneless, skinless chicken breast, thinly sliced or shredded (about 3 cups) or 1 can Kirkland chicken breast chunks, drained
  • 1/2 cup snow peas, cut in half lengthwise on a diagonal
  • 1/4 cup bell pepper, diced
  • 1/4 cup carrot, slivered
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 2 cups torn spinach leaves or other greens of your choosing
  1. Whisk mayonnaise, soy sauce and ginger together in a large bowl until blended.
  2. Add chicken, snow peas, peppers, carrots and green onion; toss to mix and coat.
  3. Serve over torn spinach leaves.
