Notes

If you like your dressing a little spicy, feel free to add in some red pepper flakes or hot sauce.
Make the salad dressing ahead of time and store it in an airtight container (like a mason jar and lid). You can use the dressing as a marinade for chicken or pork.
Instead of canned chicken, use any type of cooked chicken. Shredded rotisserie chicken is a popular choice. Canned fish is great too.
If you store the salad dressing separately in an airtight container, it will stay fresh for up to a month. You might have to shake it since the nut butter may separate after a period of time. Once blended in the salad, it should be consumed within 5 days.
