Chinese Orange Chicken
Delicate rice vinegar dresses this salad of chicken, lettuce, nuts and the requisite sesame seeds and crisp Chinese noodles.
This is a crisp lettuce salad with a zippy sweet and sour dressing. Always a hit at a gathering, but doesn’t store well. Very quick to prepare at the last minute.
The salad has cabbage and broccoli and crunchy ramen doodles and a smattering of green onion. The dressing is pungent, and poured over the salad while still warm. Chill before serving.
If you love the crisp fried noodle strips often used as garnishes in Chinese restaurants, try making your own with just 2 ingredients — egg roll wrappers and vegetable oil. Serve the crispy treats in sweet and tangy duck sauce and spicy Chinese mustard sauce.
Baby bok choy, lightly cooked just until bright green, is the star of this Chinese side dish, which gets earthy sweetness from oyster sauce and portobello mushrooms.
