Paleo Chinese Chicken Salad

This Chinese Chicken Salad is not only Paleo but also Whole30 compliant.  A vibrant and crunchy salad, kept extra clean for those who want to follow a organic, whole-foods lifestyle.  This salad has natural sweetness and tons of crunch! It keeps well refrigerated for days, so is ideal for meal prep.  You can make different variations of this salad.  Below are the ingredients to make full course.  I will list options to make a lighter salad or to serve on the side.
