**I used Asian seasoning mix from the Pampered Chef but I'm sure any brand of Asian seasoning blend from the grocery store would work well.Variations and Additions No chicken? Substitute with your favorite lean protein. I think chopped shrimp or sriracha tofu would be delicious.No basil? Use an equal amount of chopped cilantro.No Asian spices? Asian spices can be difficult to find in some areas, so if you can't find it leave it out and it will still be delicious. I mixed the dressing with just a lite sesame ginger dressing and peanut butter and it tasted great.No peanut butter? This recipe only calls for 2 tablespoons of peanut butter. To make it a little lighter, make you own by mixing powdered peanut butter with water.Serving size: 1 cupClick here to see your WW PersonalPoints for this recipe and track it in the WW app or site.7*SmartPoints (Green plan)7*SmartPoints (Blue plan)4*SmartPoints (Purple plan)8*PointsPlus (Old plan)
