Thai Chicken Salad

I recently had a delicious Thai chicken salad at Panera that I loved so much that I decided to recreate it at home. I used mixed greens, leftover chicken, bell pepper, edamame, shredded carrot, cilantro, wonton strips, peanuts, and a spicy peanut vinaigrette for this salad. I thought all of the flavors and textures were fantastic together – this is definitely a new favorite salad.

    I'm always trying to re-create stuff from Panera! I think I nailed their Asian Chicken Salad. This looks really good too. I often go into long 'Thai-food-streaks' at my house. Maybe someone can give me a hint what Edamama beans taste like – never had them and I'm curious. :)

    What about the thai chili dressing . . . . that is the main dressing for this salad and the peanut dressing is just drizzled on. If you could re-create that recipe that would be great :-)
