5cupsShredded Napa Cabbage(I cut across the cabbage and separate the slice into individual strands of cabbage)
3cupsFinely Shredded Red Cabbage
½cupchopped fresh Cilantro leaves
4large Scallions(green onions), trimmed and sliced (both white and green portions)
¼cupSesame Seeds(white, black or a mix)
Prepared the dressing by combining all the dressing ingredients into a small jar with a lid. Seal, shake vigorously and set aside for the flavors to infuse.
Prepare the homemade moist shredded chicken breast. While the chicken breasts are cooking, in a large bowl combine the Napa cabbage, red cabbage, carrots, cilantro and green onions; toss to combine, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.
Allow the freshly shredded chicken to cool slightly and combine with the salad and the sesame seeds; toss.
Dressing the salad: if you plan to serve the entire salad, add all of the dressing and toss. If you plan to use the salad over multiple meals, dress individual servings of the salad and store the salad and dressing separately to keep the salad crisp. Sprinkle the top of the salad with sliced almonds just before serving to keep them crunchy.
