thai chicken salad


It actually all started with a pizza. A delicious Thai Chicken Pizza.

And in an effort to save my appetite for Christmas Eve dinner, the Thai Chicken Pizza ingredients morphed themselves into a Thai Chicken Salad.
And it was a beautiful thing. 
I would eat this any day of the week, and for any length of time, but it’s especially perfect for post-Christmas eating.
My reasoning tells me that this extra healthy salad basically nullifies anything I’ve eaten over the last few days. Thank goodness.
