Asian Chicken and Cabbage Salad

Total time: 30 minutes
     Shredded cabbage with a creamy peanut butter dressing is the base for this chicken salad.  Sprinkled with sliced (or slivered) almonds and sesame seeds, it has a definite 'Asian' flavor.  I used red quinoa- such a pretty color, but the more common tan will work just fine.
