Ginger Chicken Cabbage Salad

I crave the Asian flavors, but I know that if I order out I will get something that has been deep fried or covered in a sauce that I just don’t need.  This salad cures my cravings but also tastes amazing and fairly healthy.  Try it and tell me what you think!Ginger Chicken Cabbage SaladFrom the Kitchen of Darby Hawley
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 tbs ground ginger
3 tbs vegetable oil
2 tbs hoisin sauce

1/4 cup green onion, entire thing chopped
2 tsp white sesame seeds
1 lb chicken tenders, chopped into 1-inch pieces
1 head of napa cabbage, thinly sliced crosswise
3 cups carrots, shredded
2/3 cup sliced almonds, toasted
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
3 more green onions, the entire thing chopped
dry roasted, unsalted, peanuts, chopped 

1. In a measuring cup, whisk together soy sauce, ginger, vegetable oil, hoisin, sesame oil chili oil and sea salt.  Put 3 tbs of the marinade into a ziplock bag and add in chicken tenders.  Make sure the chicken is coated and then put it in the fridge for a couple hours.
