Asian Chicken Salad
- 1/2 cup slivered almonds
- 3 tablespoons sesame seeds
- 4 ounces sugar snap peas
- 2 medium carrots
- One 3-inch piece fresh ginger
- 4 medium scallions
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- 3 tablespoons seasoned rice vinegar
- 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
- 2 teaspoons soy sauce (low sodium, if you prefer)
- 3/4 teaspoon hot chili sauce (preferably sriracha)
- Kosher salt
- 1/2 small head napa cabbage
- 1 small romaine lettuce heart
- 6 large radishes (optional)
- 1 package ramen noodles
- 3 cups packed shredded skinned cooked chicken from a large storebought rotisserie chicken, or leftovers
In a medium skillet over medium low heat cook the almonds, stirring frequently, until golden. Transfer them to a plate and add the sesame seeds to the same skillet. Cook the sesame seeds over medium low heat, stirring frequently until golden and add them to the almonds.
Meanwhile, bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil over high heat; prepare a medium bowl of ice and water. Remove the strings from the peas and cut diagonally in half. Stir them into the boiling water; return the water to a boil, remove and drain the peas, and plunge them into the ice and water. When the peas have cooled, drain them thoroughly and pat them dry.
Make the dressing: Coarsely chop the carrots (about 1 cup) and peel and chop the ginger (about 1 tablespoon). Trim and thinly slice the scallions, keeping the green and with parts separate (about 1/4 cup of each). Combine the carrots, ginger, white parts of the scallions, vegetable oil, 1/4 cup water, rice vinegar, sesame oil, soy sauce, and hot chili sauce in a blender. Blend until smooth; season with salt to taste.
Cut enough of the cabbage and romaine crosswise into 1/2-inch ribbons to make 2 cups of each. Coarsely shred the radishes, if using (about 1 cup). Coarsely crumble the ramen noodles.
Combine the chicken, cabbage, romaine, peas, radishes (if using), almonds, sesame seeds, and green parts of the scallions in a large bowl. Toss with half the dressing. Sprinkle the ramen noodles over the top and serve; pass the remaining dressing.
Whatever you want to call these times we’re living through, they are certainly historic. Four local institutions share with us their approach to archiving COVID-19.
Board of Supervisors adopts a county-wide policy centered on diversity, inclusion and access.
In recent weeks, artists have found their practices upturned, expanded or reenergized because of COVID-19 and calls to address racial injustice.
The health and economic consequences of the pandemic have not affected all communities across L.A. county equally; rates in communities of color across South and Central Los Angeles and the Eastside have increased dramatically.
