When was the last time you had a restaurant-quality salad at home? A colorful salad with a perfectly flavorful but not overpowering vinaigrette, a crunchy garnish, a combination of fresh, sweet, salty and savory ingredients? Sometimes it takes some restaurant inspiration to remind us that salads don’t have to be boring.
Take this Chinese chicken salad, for instance. You can whip it up in about 15 minutes, there's zero cook time, and the results are amazing. Fresh, tasty and beautiful to look at, this is the ideal salad to break a takeout streak and remind you that you can make delicious food at home even faster than the local restaurants can get it to you. If you don’t like spice, you can substitute the chili oil for vegetable oil, but it’s worth trying because the slight tingle from the chili oil really brings the dish to life.
