Grilled Ginger-Sesame Chicken Chopped Salad

Do you get easily bored of the same salads all the time? I know I do, so I’m always trying out new salad recipes. This grilled ginger-sesame chicken chopped salad is a great one to add to your rotation. It’s easy, it is incredibly flavorful and all the textures in this salad are amazing – the crunch, the chew, the tenderness and the unique bite from the sesame seeds. I love that it is healthy too! Good for you food doesn’t have to be bland and boring, with the right flavors and a few fresh ingredients you’ve got a meal worth remembering.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 c low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp finely minced ginger
  • 3 Tbsp canola oil
  • 2 Tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 1 Tbsp toasted sesame oil (I used regular un-toasted since it's all I had)
  • 1 tsp Sriracha (I didn't even notice it, so if you like heat add a little more)

  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions, green and white parts
  • 2 (9 oz) boneless skinless chicken breasts
