Full of fresh flavours and bright colours, you’re going to love this Thai inspired salad. While a lot of these salads uses cabbage as their salad base, I use romaine lettuce because I have a ton of them to use up after a trip to Costco lol. At the end of the day, it’s a salad so feel free to change up the greens to whatever you have on hand!

Why You’ll Love This Chopped Salad

  • It is perfect if you have leftovers. If you have leftover chicken, shred it up and make this salad with it. Leftover vegetables? Add them in as well! I always have a carrot lying around because I buy them by the bag so this chopped Thai salad uses it up.
  • It’s easy. There’s literally no cooking involved if you already have chicken ready (leftovers, rotisserie, etc). Even if you don’t, you can easily make shredded chicken in the Instant Pot in next to no time.
  • Peanut sauce makes everything taste better. It’s the law.
