When I want a quick and easy salad recipe for lunch, this Chicken and Broccoli Slaw Salad with Almond Butter Dressing is one of my absolute favorites. I don’t know about anyone else, but I get so tired of traditional lettuce based salads all the time.

This salad has broccoli slaw as the base, which packs in a ton of nutrition and crunch!

Over the weekend, I’ll often cook a few chicken breasts to keep on hand during the week so that I can throw this salad together for myself on a busy day. And did I mention how delicious the Thai-inspired dressing is!?! If you don’t like/have almond butter, you can use peanut butter.

I just personally prefer the flavor and health benefits of almond butter. But regular peanut butter works just fine. You get a delicious and satisfying salad without an ounce of guilt!
