For the dressing:

  • 1/4 cup Sigona’s Honey Ginger Balsamic Condimento
  • 2 Tbsp. Sigona’s Persian Lime Olive Oil
  • 1 Tbsp. Sigona’s Roasted Japanese Sesame Oil
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tsp. soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the salad:

  • 2 cooked chicken breasts we like them grilled
  • About 1/2 to 3/4 of a head of red leaf lettuce torn to bite-sized pieces (may use romaine if desired)
  • 1/2 to 1 cup shredded red cabbage
  • About 3 oz. baby spinach
  • 1 carrot cut into matchsticks
  • 2 to 4 green onions sliced on the bias
  • 1/4 cup cilantro leaves optional
  • 1/4 cup blanched sliced almonds (look for them in our dried fruit & nut section)


  • Prepare the vinaigrette by whisking together all the ingredients in a small bowl. Set aside to allow the flavors to meld together.
  • In a large bowl, add the lettuce, spinach, cabbage, carrot, green onions and cilantro leaves, if using.
  • Slice the cooked chicken into long strips and place in a bowl. Add 2 tablespoons of the vinaigrette to the chicken and toss to coat.
  • Drizzle 2 tablespoons of the vinaigrette over the greens and toss, toss, toss to coat well. Transfer the greens to a serving bowl or dish.
  • Arrange the sliced chicken on top of the salad, sprinkle with desired toppings and serve with any remaining vinaigrette on the side.
