Gluten Free Thai Chicken Salad

If the idea of salad for dinner leaves you less than thrilled, I challenge you to try THIS Gluten Free Thai Chicken Salad for dinner.

Let’s face it, as the days start to warm up and grow longer, it is a sure sign that swimsuit season is right around the corner. One of the ways I like to prepare for the season is to start eating a little lighter at night and focusing mainly on protein and vegetables. But let’s face it, grilled chicken and broccoli every night is just BORING!

That’s why I like composed salads that include a ton of veggies, some protein and a dressing that packs flavor. When you have a great dressing, you don’t need to use a lot of it, thus cutting back on fat and calories as well.

This salad is Thai inspired with a super flavorful “peanut sauce” dressing that is actually peanut free thanks to Sunbutter.

You could toss everything together and serve it that way but I like to arrange my toppings on a big bed of lettuce and serve the dressing on the side – it looks pretty and allows everyone to take what they like.
