Cashew Chicken Chopped Salad – chicken, veggies, mandarin oranges, and cashews tossed in a sweet and sour dressing! My kids LOVE this salad!
I know yesterday I said that I had a monkey bread coming today but I forgot that I wanted to talk about pizza first! So monkey bread Thursday!
And let’s be real, pizza is every bit as exciting as monkey bread.
Was your high school football team good?
Because mine wasn’t.
In 4 years, we won 1 game.
I mean, the bleachers were always packed and we were so excited for the game every single week, but man, we were terrible.
Curious: if you still live in your hometown, do your kids go to your high school? Do you go to football games with them?
If I still lived in Mobile, I’d totally want my kids to go to Baker and I’d definitely be the obnoxious parent at all the games, even if they are still terrible.
My oldest went to a local high school game with some friends last Friday and it got me thinking all about high school and football.
In exchange for my dear sweet neighbor taking all the kids to the game, I agreed to feed all the boys before they headed out and picked up a couple Tony’s Pizzas at Walmart because I know my kids most favorite pizza is Tony’s® Pizzeria Style MEAT-TRIO® Pizza.
Did you know that Tony’s Pizza has been making pizzeria-style pizzas for over 50 years? It started in a local pizzeria in Salina, KS.
Tony’s Pizza has a light, crispy crust and all their pizzas are made with fresh tomatoes and real mozzarella. The pizzeria recipe gives Tony’s Pizza a taste that’s as delicious as it is authentic.
There’s currently an Ibotta offer for $1 off 2 Tony’s Pizzas and you know I took advantage of that one. If you are not using Ibotta yet, download it now and then come back for the rest of the post. I’m currently at $262.80 saved and I’m $4.95 away from 20 bucks instantly in my paypal account. So download it. Like, now.
Cashew Chicken Chopped Salad!
While the Tony’s Pizzas were cooking, I made this quick Cashew Chicken Chopped Salad for something fresh on the side.
So simple and so delicious.
I find that if I put a lot of stuff in salads, my boys don’t complain about eating them.
So this one has shredded cabbage (use a bag of cole slaw mix to make your life really easy), shredded carrots, cilantro, green onions, chicken, mandarin oranges and cashews. And then it’s tossed with a sweet and sour dressing made from ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry.
- 2 cups cabbage shredded
- 1 cup carrots shredded
- 1/4 cup green onions sliced
- 1/4 cup cilantro chopped
- 1 cup mandarin oranges diced
- 1 cup cooked chicken diced
- 1/4 cup cashews roughly chopped
- salt and pepper
- 2 tablespoons seasoned rice vinegar
- 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
- 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- crushed red pepper flakes to taste
In a large mixing bowl, cabbage, carrots, green onions, cilantro, mandarin oranges, chicken, and cashews.
In a small bowl, whisk together all dressing ingredients. Pour over the cabbage mixture and toss to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
