Classic Paleo Asian Chicken Salad

Also a note on this recipe – traditionally, red cabbage is used in Asian chicken salad instead of red onion. However, I am not a fan of red cabbage, so I substituted red onion for extra tang and crunch. Please feel free to use the traditional cabbage instead. As it seems, the recipe is very customizable. Enjoy the refreshing light salad along with the warmer weather!
