  • 2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 3 cups thinly sliced green cabbage
  • 3 cups thinly sliced red cabbage
  • 2 cups thinly sliced carrots sliced into matchsticks
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup sliced green onions (sliced diagonally)
  • cup roughly chopped cilantro plus more for garnish
  • Crushed peanuts for garnish

Peanut butter dressing

  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger
  • ½ cup light soy sauce
  • ¼ cup rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice freshly squeezed
  • cup peanut butter
  • ½ cup crushed peanuts


  • Make the peanut butter dressing: whisk together all the dressing ingredients until smooth. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine the green cabbage, red cabbage, carrots, red bell peppers, and yellow bell peppers. Then add the green onions, cilantro, and shredded rotisserie chicken.
  • Pour some dressing (to taste) over the salad and toss to combine. Garnish with cilantro and crushed peanuts.


  • I'd recommend slicing your own veggies fresh, rather than buying the pre-bagged version. This will ensure the salad is perfectly crunchy.
  • To expedite things, use your food processor (with the slicing blade attachment) to shred the cabbage.
  • Prep ahead: All ingredients, except for the dressing, can be combined and refrigerated overnight. The dressing can be made up to 3 days in advance, but drizzle over the salad right before serving to prevent sogginess.
  • Storing: Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
