Your new favorite Chinese Chicken Salad! The best mix of salad ingredients paired with a homemade Asian salad dressing so good, you'll lick the bowl.
In a small jar with a tight-fitting lid, combine oil, vinegar, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, ginger, and sesame oil. Shake vigorously until combined.
Allow flavors to blend at room temperature while preparing the rest of the salad. Or, refrigerate for up to 4 days.
In a large bowl, combine the chicken, cabbage, carrots, scallions, and cilantro. Shake the dressing to recombine and pour over the salad.
Toss until evenly coated. Sprinkle with chow mein noodles and sesame seeds, if using, and serve.
