Peking Chicken Salad

One of the biggest changes I've made in eating is bringing my lunch to work everyday. Temple's campus is not overflowing with healthy food options, so temptation is around every corner. I try to package up leftovers and stick them in the freezer or fridge in anticipation of my lunch needs. This salad held up well for two days in the fridge after it was prepared.
