Asian Almond Chicken Salad Paleo Recipe
We recently had the pleasure of staying in the amazing Diamond Head Suite on Waikiki Beach, amongst some of the top hotels in Honolulu. It is probably the most elegant suite available at the Halekulani Hotel. We felt so lucky! Here on the south shore of the Hawaiian Island of Oahu, you can find many, many spots with views that simply take your breath away.
As you may guess by its name, this suite includes a gorgeous panoramic view of Diamond Head, the volcanic tuff-cone surrounded by the Pacific’s blue waters. This large, airy suite has plenty of glass doors and windows, and of course a breezy lanai for dining, cocktails and lounging.
Fortunately, the Halekulani dining options include in-suite dining. We ordered the most divine Asian almond chicken salad. Our waiter waltzed in and commenced to serve us on the lanai, pouring us a glass of a delightful white wine that complimented the flavor of the dish.
Back home on the east coast, I couldn’t stop daydreaming about that delicious Asian cuisine and magnificent view. Well, I knew I couldn’t recreate the view, but I decided to go online and try to find a matching recipe for the Asian Chicken Salad from Nom Nom Paleo. I found one that fit the bill just fine. I made it for my east coast friends and really livened up a dreary day.
Asian Almond Chicken Salad Recipe:
• 2 TBS Red Boat sauce
• 3 TBS almond butter
• 1 and 1/2 TBS fresh lime juice
• 2 TBS non-sweet applesauce
• 1 tablespoon of coconut vinegar
• ½ teaspoon of crushed red pepper
• 3 to 4 cups of cooked and shredded chicken
• 3 medium carrots, julienned
• 3 springs chopped basil
• Large head of romaine lettuce, washed and torn into bite-size pieces
• 6-8 peeled and sliced kohlrabi roots
Create a sauce using the fish sauce, lime juice, almond butter, coconut vinegar and red pepper. Use a whisk to get the ingredients blended in well. Use shred carrots and slice the kohlrabi. Place them in a bowl and then add the dressing. Finally, toss in the herbs and chicken.
Toss once more and serve this up on a crispy bed of romaine lettuce. I hope you enjoy this dish just as much as my family and I do!
