Chinese Chicken Salad Sandwich

 In yesterday’s post I mentioned how I’m boycotting the oven and the stove this summer in favor of making a few no-cook recipes. Today, I have a fabulous Chinese Chicken Salad Sandwich. I love this sandwich and I’m not a sandwich fan. It was quick to put together and full of flavor.

To make this a no-cook recipe I used a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store. Have I told you how much I love these chickens and how versatile they are?? In case you missed it here are a series of posts I did using one rotisserie chicken.

Barbecue Chicken Pizza

Chicken Taco Soup

The key to this fabulous dish is the dressing, Sesame-Ginger dressing. I love this dressing. The mix of the sesame oil with garlic and ginger is just so wonderful. It would be great on a green salad as well.

My fiancé and I loved this dish and admittedly ate several between us. This would be a great sandwich to take on a picnic.

Enjoy!
