Oriental Chicken Cabbage Salad

I have fond memories of this salad showing up at many a summer barbecue as a kid. It always tasted better the day after. I’ve made a few tweaks to my mother’s recipe, mostly to make it more colorful. I hope this salad becomes your family tradition like it was mine. Enjoy!
