Thai chicken salad from Chelsea Winter
I really like websites and blogs that are transparent – you know exactly who stands behind the curtains. Here is an example for such a blog: Chelsea Winter. The website’s name is actually the name of the owner and author. This girl has some amazing recipes to share with us. The recipe that I decided to show you isn’t super simple, but it is worth! Take a look a this juicy Thai chicken salad…So many things are in. Lots of textures, explosion of flavors. I like to call salad like this “multi-layer” salads. You have one layer at the bottom – in our case the noodles. Then you have a second layer, which is actually the salad. And finally you have a third layer. That is the chicken with the nuts. The interesting thing is that you prepare the layers separately, you season them separately. You don’t just mix all the ingredients, toss them well, add the dressing and that’s it. No no. Here you need to be patient. This Thai chicken salad is a salad, which has to be cooked. 🙂 But don’t get afraid and discouraged. Chelsea gives the full recipe with all little details and steps of the process. You just have to copy and paste. Not that hard, right?
If you like to eat chicken, if you like noodles and if you like rich, but healthy and not too heavy foods, you are going to like also this salad. I give you a quick summary below. Don’t forget to read my suggestions and ideas about this Thai chicken salad.

Ideas for making the salad just a little bit different:
- You could add honey instead of brown sugar.
- You could add some pineapple. I think it would taste great with the grilled chicken and corn.
- You could grill some mushrooms with the chicken.
