Welcome! I am so happy you chose to gather around my table. My name is Mia Swinehart and I am a registered dietitian with a passion for simple healthy recipes, women's hormonal health, and overall wellness!
I can’t remember the last time I loved a salad this munch! This Asian-inspired salad has all the flavor, crunch, nutrients, and simplicity I could want in a big salad. I am obsessed!
This salad is gluten free, soy free, and dairy free. It’s a super healthy meal that tastes like you ordered out. Salads at restaurants are always better at home it seems like…until now. This salad truly tastes like something I would order at a restaurant! It’s heavenly.
The simple vinaigrette is out of this world. SO much flavor! I haven’t made it with any subs, so I recommend leaving as is for best results!
You can easily make a double or triple batch of the dressing for the week! Such a good meal prep staple, or for feeding a crowd/big family!
This salad is seriously so good. The crunchy roasted cashews with the fresh crunchy veggies and rice is just the perfect combo. The vinaigrette really ties everything together.
If you’ve got some leftover chicken and rice on hand, this is the perfect way to use it! If that’s the case, then you’ve got yourself a no-cook dinner! Couldn’t be more simple.
I love to buy rotisserie chicken for this salad, but you can of course grill or shred your own! To keep this vegetarian, tofu would be delicious in this.
I can’t wait to hear when you make this one! Enjoy! xo
Your recipes never fail me! I was just excited to find another simple GF/DF dinner option for 2 that used much of what I already had in the house. But my boyfriend, who is hard to impress, actually said this meal was one of his favorites! Next time I’ll probably double the dressing. Keep em comin!!
Omg you are SO sweet! Thank you sooo much Micaela!! xoxo
Obsessed with this recipe! The sauce is the best I’ve been using it all week!
In love!! Thank you for a healthy, yet delicious dinner. I wouldn’t change a thing!
This was amazing! Perfect for an easy date night!
Super quick to make and really delicious! Leftovers might even have been better the next day.
Thank you so much Hayley! xo
Absolutely delicious! Roasted cashews gave it a nice touch. The dressing will definitely be a new staple.
Thank you so much Rachel! xo
I LOVE this salad. It’s such an easy work from home lunch, and feels like I’m eating a restaurant salad!! The dressing is delicious.
Loved this! It is light and refreshing but also so satisfying – everything you want in a salad! I’m not a huge cashew fan so I subbed peanuts…so good. When I made this for my boyfriend and he was convinced it was takeout!
We’ve been on a Gathered Nutrition recipe kick the past couple of weeks and this is definitely top of our list- never buying dressing again. This is AMAZING.
Made this with chickpeas instead of chicken and it was amazing! So quick and full of flavor ????
Now that it’s hot again in Chicago, I made this salad and am reminded this it is one of my most absolute favorite things to eat/make when it’s hot out. I cut all the veggies and wash the lettuce, then I make rice and chicken and the dressing and keep everything separate. Then I just assemble everything during the week whenever I need it! I LOVE a warm component (the chicken and rice) in a salad and the dressing is delicious. Def double it, if not more. And I use whatever nuts/seeds I have on hand! Love love love
