Every bite was an OMG bite. That’s how good it was! What really made the dish was the basil and the peanut sauce.

The freshness from the crisp vegetables paired with the slightly salty chicken, fragrant herbs, tangy lime juice, and sweet and slightly spicy peanut sauce…it’s perfection. Seriously this salad is incredible. Please make it soon!
