The best Chinese chicken salad with oriental salad dressing.
My mom has been making this Chinese chicken salad for as long as I can remember! Even as a little kid we loved it because, hey, it has ramen noodles in it! Now, as an adult I love it, because it packs in the veggies and tastes like heaven!
Chinese chicken salad is also a great party salad because it makes a ton and is super cheap to throw together! Plus, the easy homemade Oriental salad dressing takes the whole thing over the top!
How to make Chinese chicken salad:
Chinese chicken salad is so easy to make! All you do is chop up all your ingredients and toss them together in a bowl! I like to use a rotisserie chicken because not only does it make things super easy but the flavor is delicious!

One of the best things about Chinese chicken salad is that it is super adaptable!
What goes in a Chinese chicken salad?
My version has cabbage, grapes, chicken, green onions, ramen noodles, and cashews! If you don’t love any of those ingredients though you can easily leave them out or sub them for something else you like! Other ideas are peppers, oranges, slivered almonds, crunchy wantons, really the sky is the limit!
Oriental Salad Dressing
If you don’t want to make the homemade Oriental salad dressing you can use store bought, but I highly recommend making this recipe! It really takes the salad over the top and it is SO GOOD. Definitely my favorite part of this salad is this Oriental dressing.
I like to make mine in a small mason jar, then just shake up the ingredients and store it all in the same place!
Mmm. I could seriously drink this Oriental dressing!
Nothing is better than a fresh healthy salad in the summer!
