Peanut Dressing

  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. Add broccoli, chicken, peas, mandarin orange and chopped onion into a large bowl.
  2. Add dressing to salad, tossing to combine.

Cooking Tip: 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.

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