Mealthy Tip

Before squeezing the lime over the salad, top with about 1/4 of a sliced avocado for even more flavor! It gives the salad a fresh boost when you need a lunchtime pick me up!

These were a quick and easy lunch I ate at work. So good and simple. I'm making these again.

I love Chinese chicken salad and this had a similar feel to it. the Peanut dressing was delicious and all the ingredients work together really nicely. It would have been nice to eat it straight out of the jar but it was tough to mix it up in there. delicious! will make again!

This was my first time making salad jars! Super cool and very delicious salad! I was hesitant about the mango at first, but so glad I used it. It worked perfectly with the Thai flavors, amazing, I will definitely be making this salad again.

Very good dressing, excellent flavors, nice crunch. I also really prefer the shredded chicken over cubed chicken. Great recipe all around, I give this salad 5 stars easily.

I thought this was fantastic. I would have never ordered this when eating out, but had and liked all ingredients. Restaurant quality salad. Stored the peanuts in Saran on the top so they stayed crunchy. Yum!!!

I’m not seeing the ingredients for the salad dressing.

I hate to leave a low review for app problems verses the recipe but like other reviewers stated, there is no ingredient list nor measurements for the dressing. I created a grocery list along with other meals and didn’t realize the dressing ingredients weren’t included. There is a video so it helps with guesstimating but back to the store I had to go. Also this recipe does not allow for me to change the serving size from 4 to a different number?

Wanted to make this but don’t have the dressing ingredients or measurements. Frustrating!

I made four servings as suggested, adding (for 4 servings) a cup of black beans, 2 Oz of crumbled feta, and one cup of home made crispy quinoa cooked in lime zest and sprinkled worth cumin S&P to crisp. (Had to beef up protein for a working lunch). Huge hit. When we first tasted the dressing, it was too acid forward. In the salad after resting overnight it was perfect. Will be using this recipe as a basis for lunch with whatever protein is left over.

Why isn’t there an amount given for peanut butter and wet ingredients? It doesn’t explain Any ingredients on salad dressings!! I can’t rate it!

Where in the recipe does it give the amount for peanut butter or honey? Am I missing something?

This is a delicious recipe! I am seeing a lot of low star ratings but only based on the fact that the dressing recipe was not included in the recipe for the salad. Don't let that push you away from trying this salad. If you watch the video you are given the ingredients and measurements; just have to write them down yourself. Not a huge deal. I have typed them out below for you to copy and paste! :) I took a short cut and used broccoli slaw in place of the broccoli florets, red cabbage and shredded carrots. Also, if you're vegetarian... this salad is filling even without chicken added. I left it out and had no complaints from the husband or kids. Thai peanut dressing - from video: 1/4c peanut butter 1 lime; juiced 3T EVOO 2T rice vinegar 1T soy sauce 1T honey 1/4tsp red pepper flakes
