  • 6 to 8 cups thinly sliced greens (kale, collards, savoy cabbage, bok choy)
  • 2 to 3 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • 2 large carrots, julienned
  • 1 cup slivered almonds, lightly toasted
  • sesame seeds for garnish


  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 3 tablespoons coconut vinegar (or brown rice vinegar)
  • 3 tablespoons coconut aminos (or wheat-free tamari)
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons honey
  • 1 clove garlic
  • one 1-inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled


Toss all of the ingredients for the salad into a large bowl if serving immediately. If you want to stretch the salad over a few days place all ingredients into separate containers and store in the fridge. Use what you would like for each serving.

To make the dressing, place all ingredients into a blender and blend on high until combined. Pour dressing over salad, toss and serve. Garnish with sesame seeds if desired. Source:
