Asian Citrus Chicken Salad - a delicious salad filled with all of our favorite ingredients including chicken, edamame, mandarin oranges, peppers, cucumbers and wontons!

Have you ever been to Zupa’s? It’s one of our favorite restaurants here in the Phoenix area. They are known for their delicious sandwiches, soups and salads. I typically get a salad and panini when I’m there, and one of my favorite salads is their Asian Citrus Chicken Salad. The last time I was there, I was sure to make notes of all the ingredients so I could try and make it at home. Although it isn’t exact, I though the salad tasted pretty similar and was delicious. This salad is filled with so many of my favorite ingredients, including chicken, cucumbers, peppers, wontons, edamame and a delicious Asian citrus vinaigrette dressing. The combination of flavors is amazing and makes it the perfect salad to serve at any function.

If you love salads as much as we do, then this is another one you’ll want to try. You can even add other favorite ingredients like almonds or peanuts. We love it just how we made it and are excited to make it more often.

I love the range of colors in this salad. The mandarin slices really stand out, not imagined of adding it in a salad. I initially thought the wanton strips was fried pork skin. Somehow, I feel this salad goes well with fish sauce.
