If you are a fan of the Kardashian’s you’ve probably, on multiple occasions, seen them mowing down on delicious, big salads in one of their kitchens. It’s rumored that their favorite go-to salad order is the Chinese Chicken Salad from The Health Nut in LA. However, if you’re like me, and don’t live in LA, then you can make this salad right in the comfort of your home. Here is my vegan variation.

Fresh ingredients for vegan chicken salad on counter

Ingredients:

Plant-Based Chicken: The vegan chicken substitute I used in this vegan chicken salad is from Lightlife. I love their products. They’re easy and so good! Their chicken tenders that I used in this recipe are made with pea protein and makes this salad more filling and hearty!

Dressing: What makes this salad Chinese inspired is from the dressing. It combines some classic seasonings that you’ll often find in Chinese cooking like soy sauce, ginger, sesame oil, and rice vinegar. It’s incredibly flavorful!

Expert Tips & FAQ:

Protein: Use ANY plant-based chicken you wish- choose your favorite one!!!

I don’t have red pepper sesame oil: Swap the red pepper sesame oil for regular or toasted sesame oil.

Serving: This salad is AWESOME to pack for lunches, bring to potlucks, or to eat at any time. Be sure to ALWAYS keep the dressing separate from the ingredients until ready to mix and serve!

Storage: Salad can be kept in the fridge in an airtight container for 4 – 6 days. Again, keep the dressing prepared aside for the best and MOST delicious results.
