Trader Joe’s Chinese Inspired Chicken Salad Reviews

Chinese Inspired Chicken Salad: 4/10

After making my way through lots of the pre-made wrap section, I needed to start to review the pre-made salad section and this was one of the first salads on my list! I have to say I was disappointed with this one. There really was not much to it – green cabbage, chicken, snow peas, crunchy noodle pieces, and a sesame soy dressing. The dressing was pretty good and flavorful but not as good as Chinese chicken salad dressing I’m used to. The salad as a whole definitely left me wanting more flavor. The chicken is what dropped this salad in score a whole lot. Chicken in prepared packaged meals is always hit or miss and this chicken was a miss. The rib meat made it too chewy and overall bland and didn’t taste fresh. I feel like I could make a homemade salad that I would enjoy much more than this but it is a very easy, quick meal that’s great for on the go meals. It’s $4.69 for this salad.

Have you tried it yet? What’s your favorite salad at TJs?

  1. In the fall they have one called the Turkey Harvest salad (or something like that). It has Turkey and sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts and cranberries and more. I have it just as often as i possibly can.

  2. Yes!! I had one similar to this with the peanut dressing (one of my favs) but I agree- the cold chewy and slightly fatty chicken is not the way for me. TJ we can do better! I believe in you 😂🥰
