food soundtrack: green green grass of tunnel by MUM
I am out of work at the moment. so my time goes to looking for a new job. One including maybe creating a cooking show, so cross fingers.
Today I share with you my oriental chicken salad, its fresh, crucnhy and filling. It works as a shared salad for a party, lunch or a dinner dish. There are different elements to this salad, you dont need all of it of course and you can make your own twist, but I found this combination leaves me utterly satisfied.
I am not gonna give a specified amount, you cant choose how much or little you want to use.
For the salad greens I used
- Chinese cabbage, chopped
- Red cabbage, chopped
- fresh bean sprouts
- snow peas, chopped
- spring opnion, chopped
- mixed greens
- Mandarin orange sliced up.
You will also need some boiled shredded chicken
For the topping I used some finely chopped peanuts and some crispy wontons. You can use some broken up instant noodles instead of wontons if you have trouble finding wontons.
Sesame ginger dressing
- 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger root
- 3/4 cup olive oil
- 1/3 cup rice vinegar
- 1/2 cup soy sauce
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 1/4 cup water
Mix the dressing together well and pour over salad
