  • 1 recipe for Low-Fat Honey Mustard Dressing
  • ½ head abut 4 cups Napa cabbage, sliced to whatever thickness you like
  • ½ package coleslaw mix
  • 2 cups iceberg lettuce sliced like the cabbage (gives a nice fresh crunch) or romaine lettuce
  • ½ red bell pepper sliced thinly into 2-inch lengths
  • 3 green onions thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup cilantro leaves
  • ½ cup Chinese style Chow Mein Noodles
  • ¼ cup toasted almond slices
  • 4 breaded and fried chicken tenders from the deli, or make them yourself


  • In a large bowl mix together the Napa cabbage, coleslaw mix, lettuce, bell pepper, onions, and cilantro leaves with just enough dressing to lightly coat them. Divide the salad into two large serving plates. Cut the tenders thinly and place on top of the salad, (save remaining dressing in the refrigerator for another use) then sprinkle the Chow Mein noodles and almonds over the top. Serve with additional dressing on the side, if desired.
