Fast & Easy Recipe For Giada De Laurentiis Asian Chicken Salad

Summer of Salads: Asian Chicken Salad

I've consumed countless salads over the last few months, from heirloom tomato panzanella to Niçoise salad and everything in between. But I'd almost forgotten about the American café favorite, Asian chicken salad, until I found myself watching Giada at Home one afternoon, and had yet another "must make this" moment. Her version is topped with sliced, roasted chicken and coated in a not-too-cloying soy dressing. The result is a light, yet hearty salad that I could eat over and over again. See for yourself when you check out the recipe.
