Asian Chicken Salad

At HYPOXI we love the ease of making simple ‘bowl food’, and this asian chicken salad is also super refreshing. It works well as a light dinner on warm nights, a perfect ‘bring a plate’ dish to a summer BBQ and also an ideal take- to-work lunch idea. You can even put the dressing in a separate container and transport with you to keep it fresh.
