Thai Chicken Salad Recipe

Easy and healthy Thai Chicken Salad Recipe with peanuts and Greek yogurt that is perfect for meal prep, with quinoa or in a whole wheat sandwich. |

Hola! I’m back from Mexico City and will share my trip as soon as we return from San Juan Islands, WA, the trip I will have to share too (can you tell that I think “life is short”?!). Like after any vacation, I was craving my homemade food, and now with both of us working from home I am very intentional about meal prepping. Yes, I did meal prep (which is on the list to share too) and this Thai chicken salad recipe was a huge part of it and a huge hit! We served it 3 days in a row with quinoa, in a sandwich on sprouted whole wheat bread, and by the spoon with tortilla chips while sipping on whiskey. Lots of things are happening and I present you this colourful salad video.

I’m not a fan of traditional chicken salad, however I can eat it non-stop this way – moderately creamy with Greek yogurt, bulked up with cabbage and peppers, flavoured with fresh herbs, roasted peanuts, rice vinegar and a moderate amount of red pepper flakes. Yes, I can eat my Thai chicken salad every other week! It’s not spicy for kids, so made a few school lunches as well.


Have a great weekend!:)

  1. Made this for dinner and it didn’t disappoint!! Grilled the chicken and used a little sesame oil, didn’t have any maple syrup so substituted a little honey….fresh, crunchy, healthy and amazing. Thank you for a great recipe that can be filling enough for a family dinner and still leave leftovers for lunch! Yum!!!

  2. Only had a green cabbage so it doesn’ tlook as pretty, but it sure tastes awesome!! Stuffed some into a whole wheat pita bread and was a very filling tasty lunch!

  3. Great salad recipe! Colorful, filling and yummy!
    I’m not a huge fan of yogurt as a salad dressing, so l used the rice wine vinegar
    combined with liquid aminos and a very small amount of sesame oil instead.

  4. OMG this is the best chicken salad ever! I have been making it for the past 4 months and never get tired of it.

  5. I made this Thai Chicken salad on Sunday to prep a full week’s worth of work lunches, and I am in love! I added quinoa like you suggested and it is so filling and tasty. The salad is so crunchy and refreshing and the Greek yogurt adds just the right amount of creamy. I love reading your blog, and I love making your recipes. Thank you so much for putting all of them out there for us to enjoy. Keep up the great work!
