Asian Chicken Salad with Water Chestnuts

Asian Chicken Salad with Water Chestnuts

I love the texture and flavors in this Asian inspired salad. You can find canned water chestnuts in the International section of most grocery stores (sliced or diced). For dressing, I recommend the Panera Bread Asian Style Vinaigrette which is 1 SmartPoint for 2 tbsp (all WW plans). A lot of mainstream grocery stores carry this dressing in the produce section (refrigerated).


Recipe makes 1 large salad. SmartPoints values and nutrition information exclude dressing.
