4 to 6 servings

About $2.03-$3.04 per serving

Peanut Dressing
2 tablespoons natural no-salt added peanut butter
2 teaspoons low-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon lemon juice or vinegar
2 to 3 tablespoons water
  1. In a small bowl, add peanut butter, soy sauce, and lemon juice.
  2. Add enough water to make the dressing thinner, about 2 to 3 tablespoons of water. Use a fork or a whisk to combine dressing.
Thai Chicken and Broccoli Salad
1 (12 oz.) frozen package broccoli florets or 2 cups chopped fresh broccoli
2 cups shredded chicken (from skinless breast meat of a rotisserie chicken) or 2 (10 oz.) cans salt-free white meat chicken, drained
1 (15 oz.) can no-salt added or low-sodium sweet peas, drained
1 (11 oz.) cans mandarin orange slices in own juices or light syrup, drained and rinsed
¼ cup chopped white, yellow, or green onion
  1. Add broccoli, chicken, peas, mandarin orange and chopped onion into a large bowl.
  2. Add dressing to salad, tossing to combine.

Cooking Tips: Some peanut butter brands are thicker than others; so more water may be needed to thin out the dressing.

Keep it Healthy: If using fresh broccoli, also chop up the broccoli stems. It tastes good and is full of vitamins.

Grocery Tips: Buying a pre-cut package of broccoli is a time-saver but also slightly more expensive.
