>For Dinner Tonight…


In an effort to mix up my salad routine, I decided to try an asian chicken salad tonight for dinner. I based my version off one of my favorite salads from Nordstrom Cafe. While I nixed the oranges and wontons in essence of time, this recipe could easily be tweaked depending on the ingredients in your pantry. Overall though, it’s a very tasty one!
