Top 10 Salad Recipes

5. Asian chicken salad recipe

How about having something heavy this time? Salad consists of a mixture of small pieces of food, which are usually vegetables. There are different types of salad according to the point they are served during a meal. We have appetizer, side, main and dessert salads. You have encountered a dessert salad already. The first on our list, buko salad. This time, we have a main course salad. This kind usually contains a portion of high-protein food, such as chicken, which we will use now in our recipe. Main course salads are also known as dinner or entree salads. They may also contain seafood, such as grilled or fried shrimp or fish/steaks.

Now, as you can see, chicken salad uses chicken as a main ingredient. Other ingredients may include mayonnaise, hard-boiled egg, celery, onion, pepper, pickles, and a variety of mustards. In the USAm chicken salad may refer to any salad with chicken or a specific mixed salad that consists primarily of chopped meat and a binder, such as mayonnaise or salad dressing. So how does it differ from an Asian chicken salad? In Asia (also in Europe), the salad may be complemented with a number of dressing (not just mayonnaise) or no dressing at all. Specifically, Asians commonly use different types of sauce. With the kind of mixture it has, Asian chicken salad commonly presents a fresh, clean taste. It is because of the sauce.

In this recipe, we use no mayonnaise at all. What we use here are olive oil, soy sauce, rice vinegar, honey, red pepper flakes, and salt and white pepper to taste. Can you sense the kind of salad it is? With such ingredients mixed with cabbage, carrot, scallion, almonds, cilantro, and sesame seeds, we can say that it is a healthy one. And who doesn’t want a healthy dish? I cannot forget when I had a taste of chicken salad in Thailand. Very refreshing! You will want to gobble up everything. How about trying it yourself?
