Perfect for your July Long Weekend picnic or barbeque, here's another delight from the Diabetes Association in Brooks, Alberta.  This recipe makes use of Napa cabbage, also known as Chinese cabbage, which is available in almost any supermarket.  As it contains lots of chicken as a healthy protein source, this easy-to-make salad is a meal in itself!

  • 2 cups finely shredded Napa cabbage
  • 1 cup slivered green and red bell peppers
  • 2 tbsp chopped green onions
  • 1/4 cup slivered, toasted almonds, for garnish
  • 1/2 cup plain low fat yogurt
  • 1/3 cup rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp lite soya sauce
  • 1/2 tsp grated fresh ginger root


1.  Mix the dressing ingredients in a large bowl. 

2.  Add the chicken and veggies. 

3.  Toss!

4.  Top with the almonds and let the dressing soak through the layers. 

5.  Enjoy!
