Make

  1. Heat a wok or skillet over medium heat. Add almonds and saute until lightly toasted, ~3 minutes. Set aside. Return wok to heat.
  2. To heated wok, add cooking oil (portion for salad). Use a slotted spoon to remove chicken from marinade (discard marinade) and add to wok. Season chicken with some salt and pepper as it cooks. Saute until chicken is golden brown and cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes.
  3. Combine cabbage, celery, green onions, edamame, avocados, chicken, and almonds in a large mixing bowl.
  4. Give vinaigrette a stir and pour over salad ingredients. Toss until all ingredients are well combined. Taste and season with some salt and pepper.
  5. Enjoy salad immediately while almonds still have their crunch!
