Cooking Channel host Kelsey Nixon uses an Asian chopped salad kit as a shortcut ingredient with an easy homemade peanut sauce for this easy, quick + healthy Thai Crunch Salad. 

Kelsey likes the Taylor Farms Asian Chopped Salad Kit, but any brand should work well.


  • ½ rotisserie chicken
  • One 24-ounce Asian chopped salad kit
  • ½ cup shelled edamame
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • ¼ cup chopped peanuts, plus more for garnish
  • ¼ cup smooth peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon store-bought chili garlic sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sugar 


Serves: 4


Remove the meat from the rotisserie chicken and shred into bite-sized pieces. Toss the Asian salad kit in a large mixing bowl. Add edamame, avocado, and peanuts and toss to combine. 

In a food processor or blender, combine the peanut butter, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, chili garlic sauce, sugar, and 2 tablespoons water; blend until smooth.

Drizzle the dressing over the salad and top with more chopped peanuts, if desired.
