Chicken & Cabbage Salad

Adapted from my Mom's recipe

½ c. sliced Almonds
¼ c. sunflower seeds
1-2 Tbsp. sesame seeds (optional)

Toss on a baking sheet and toast in oven OR toast them in a pan over medium heat.

½ large head of cabbage, shredded
1 bunch of green onions, diced
2 c. cooked, cubed chicken (I like to season w/ lemon pepper & lemon juice)
1 orange, peeled and cut into bite-size pieces (optional)
1/2 red pepper, diced or julienned (optional)

3 Tbsp. white vinegar
½ tsp. pepper
1/3 c. sunflower oil
¼ c. sugar
3 Tbsp. soy sauce

Toss vegetables and chicken together in a large bowl. Add toasted nuts and seeds. Drizzle dressing over top, then toss to coat. Chill in fridge. If using, add orange pieces just before serving.
