Orange Teriyaki Salad

I’m a big fan of orange chicken from the Chinese restaurant. There’s just something about the sweet and tangy combination of the sauce that is just so good. Believe it or not, the flavors are just as great on a salad!

Jon and I went to his parents’ home for dinner a few weeks ago. They were making a chicken stir-fry filled with chicken and fresh crisp vegetables over a fried rice. Jon’s aunt and grandmother were also visiting, so we were asked to bring a salad. I wanted to stay with the Asian inspired theme of the evening so I came up with a yummy Orange Teriyaki Salad.

The salad was a huge success. It was fresh, cool, and crisp. It is perfect for a summertime meal or side dish. As always, serve your salad on a platter, not only is it beautiful, but you’ll get an even amount of all of the toppings!
