Chinese Chicken Salad

When I first moved to Los Angeles, several of my friends were regulars at Chin 
Chin restaurant, which is famous for its chinese chicken salad. One bite of this 
crisp, crunchy, fresh salad and you'll immediately understand why it's so darn popular.
always trying to think of recipes that our entire family can eat together (this is yet another one of my tips for getting your little ones to eat since they love to have what mommy and daddy are having) and 
this one is a winner in my house. This is one of those dishes that Kenya better 
eat quick or Mommy and Daddy are definitely going to get to it first.
Steaming the chicken breast is the most complicated part -- this recipe couldn't be easier. The salad 
is packed with vitamin packed veggies and the dressing is almost creamy. 
You would never imagine a toddler eating "salad," but trust me, 
this will change their minds.

    I made this for my 15 month old, she promptly threw it on the floor, but when I put in on her highchair minus the bowl she devoured it!! I wrapped mine in a cabbage leaf and it was so tasty! Thanks!

    this sounds interesting except there are many details that are left out, like shredding (?) the cabbage, chopping (?) the peppers, etc. I doubt you mean to imply that the cabbage leaves are tossed into the recipe, right???
