Keep the slaw salad, diced chicken and sauce stored separately until you are ready to prep your lunch for the day. Then stir all the ingredients together in a sealed container and grab a fork. It’s that easy.

The prepared Asian salad can easily keep it’s crunch for up to 6 hours. I can’t attest to how well the cabbage retains it’s crunchy texture after that.

No matter what, the flavors are always on point! Just keep the 3 “main” ingredients separate until you are ready to devour this recipe.
