Eating lighter anytime is great and making light flavorful salads there are so many options, using fruits and fresh vegetables.  There are always family favorites,
potato, pasta all vegetable and fruit or a combinations. And the dressing are limitless!!!
One of my favorite has been “Asian Chicken Salad” with a Crunch made with Ramen noodles, toasted almonds and sesame seeds, with cut up chicken and cabbage.

I use 1 bag of coleslaw mix or you can use 1 head of napa cabbage, shredded thinly sliced
2 packages of Ramen noodles crushed, saving back 1 packet of the chicken flavoring to make dressing.
4 green onions thinly sliced on the diagonal
1/4 cup cilantro leaves, I use a little less
2 cups chicken breasts, shredded or cubed
*3 TBSP. toasted sliced almonds
*2 TBSP. Sesame seeds
To make the dressing: 
4 TBSP sugar
1/4 cup of mild flavor light oil like olive or sesame oil.
1/2 Tsp. fresh ground pepper
6 TBSP rice vinegar
Putting it all together:
Combine salad ingredients in a large bowl
Mix all dressing ingredients and 1 Ramen noodle seasoning packet and pour over salad.
Refrigerate overnight or several hours.
**For toasting almonds and sesame seeds I use a small fry pan, no oil.  On medium heat add the almonds, shake the pan slowly to toast. Set aside to cool ad then do the same with the sesame seeds. ***For other add in’s you could try mandarin oranges, or as a garnish, crisp glass noodles.This recipe was adapted from
