While I am not strictly following the “Keto” Diet, I am trying to include more low carb/Keto Friendly meals throughout my week. I try to intentionally plan to eat a salad 1-2 days per week for lunch, and I do like a variety to keep things interesting and not the same old thing all the time. This Keto Chinese Chicken Salad is delicious, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do 🙂

In a small bowl, combine oil, vinegar, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, ginger, and sesame oil. Whisk until fully combined. 

Allow dressing to sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes for flavors to blend while preparing the rest of the salad. Or, refrigerate for up to 4 days.
