Asian inspired chicken salad with coconut dressing

I made y'all a salad. 
A bonkers awesome colorful salad which doesn't require a lot of time, money or butter.
It's incredibly healthful too; we've got a whole bunch of vegies, skinny chicken, fresh herbs... 
Look at us; being al healthy and shizzle! 
No worries though. We'll still have butter for dinner.

This pretty salad is totally ready for bikini-season

Note: I started making this delicious recipe last year waaaay before I even tought about blogging. The salad became such a hit around here I wrote the recipe down. Unfortunately, I didn't mention my sources back then. I searched through all my cookbooks but couldn't find the original source. If you recognise this recipe you're welcome to contact me and I'll set it straight asap.
