Starfruit Thai salad

Unique and tantalizing Thai salad is easy to make. The starfruit, cucumber, spring onions and sensuous dressing make it a luxurious treat for dinner or potluck. Adding chicken brings the salad into entrée status.

1 cup chopped chicken breasts
1 cucumber, peeled and sliced
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, lightly chopped
1/4 cup fresh basil, lightly chopped
3 spring onions, chopped
1 starfruit, sliced into stars

2 tablespoons sesame oil
2 tablespoons fresh lime
1 teaspoon sugar
1 clove garlic, minced

Combine salad ingredients in a large bowl and dressing ingredients in a small bowl. Just before serving, toss dressing and salad together.
Serves 4 as a salad or 2 for dinner
