EZCR#18 - CHICKEN SALAD WITH GINGER/ONION DRESSING

A nice chicken salad that is easy to prepare. The main ingredient here is chicken meat. Zucchini/carrot are added for a crunchy texture and colour. Mixed with the fragrant ginger/onion dressing, the salad is aromatic. If you like it spicy, replace the oil with Szechuan Chilli Oil.   This dressing is quite similar to ginger/spring onion coulis.
This salad is good for hot and humid weather. It is an appetizing cold dish and the flavour is rather mild [use more ginger/onion dressing for more intense flavour].
Ingredients
Ginger/Onion Dressing
50 gm ginger 
2 stalks spring onions
½ tsp salt or more to taste
1 tbsp spring onion oil* [can replace by Szechuan Chilli Oil]
*Obtained by frying some cut spring onions with oil until lightly charred. Discard the spring onions and set aside oil.
1 chicken whole leg 
1 egg
½ small carrot – peeled and shredded 
½ small zucchini – peeled and shredded
1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
  1. Blend ginger and spring onions in a blender, add in salt to taste. Mix in the oil, set aside.
  2. Blanched chicken in boiling water for 5 minutes, off heat and steep for 30 minutes. Remove, cool and shredded.
  3. Beat egg and fry into a thin omelette . Cut thin strips.
  4. In a mixing bowl, mix chicken, omelette, carrots and zucchini. Toss well with the dressing. 
  5. Sprinkle toasted sesame seeds. Serve immediately or chilled.

Wah, Kimmy! You know I love salads and this one must be very flavorful. I am always on the lookout for new salad dressings and this oriental style one gets my thumbs up!

Hi Phong Hong, most salads or local kerabu are sweet and sourish. This one is not but very aromatic and a little 'hot' because of the ginger.

Hi Kimmie. This salad sure looks good and refreshing. Just wondering the yellow strips in the pix. Is it yellow bell pepper? Thanks for sharing your homey recipies. By the way I tried your kung pow chicken and tasted very delish.hope to cook your spareribs blackbean this week. Will need to use bean sauce as I don't have the packet black beans. Hope it is OK. You have made our meals so much more interesting. Thanks again. Regards Chloe

Thanks Chloe for your positive feedback. Some readers told me that the recipes I shared are too simple and cheap. I believe simple dishes using cheap ingredients can be nutritious, delicious and healthy. The yellow strips are shredded egg omelette. Do try the black beans prok ribs, it is delicious. I'm not sure if the black bean paste is more salty than the packet ones. Do check before adding salt or light soy sauce. Happy cooking.
