  • About

Chicken salad seems to be part of the American way of life; it’s a luncheon standby and a picnic favorite. Here I’ve created my own version redolent of fresh ginger and accented with toasted macadamia nuts. I owe the presentation of the salad to Japanese culinary aesthetics, using shredded daikon radish and cucumber “mountains” as garnishes. But you could Americanize your presentation and mound the chicken on crisp lettuce leaves.
