Presenting: Asian Chicken and Cabbage Salad

Asian Chicken and Cabbage Salad

This post was fairly spontaneous. The weather this week has been very warm where I live. The predicted high temperature in San Francisco the day I typed this was 94 which is highly unusual. To give you an idea, a thirty minute drive east during the hottest days of July when it can often reach over 100, it's common for San Francisco not to break 80. This past Monday, after listening to the weather forecast I made a list to purchase ingredients for warm weather dishes such as ceviche and gazpacho. I also looked at salads and found one on Bon App├ętit magazine's website that sounded refreshing.

It's subjective, but I'm also slowly coming to the realization that I take my best pictures outdoors. The picture of the gazpacho I referred to above wasn't taken by me, but my strawberry dessert I published last September and the Moscato themed dessert from a couple of weeks ago were, so I thought I could use the practice.

You might also contrast this salad to the salad I published for the Five Ingredients or Less #SundaySupper event because there are more than five ingredients in the dressing. I didn't adapt the recipe, so you can get it here.


  1. It must be all the natural light that makes your outdoor photos look good (which they do. The photo of your salad looks fantastic!). When I was in my apartment, it was perfect for photography because I had floor to ceiling windows that faced south and west (tons of light). Now that I'm in a house, I'm struggling a bit because we face south and north and it's quite dark. As for the salad - I love the asian flavours in there. It sounds delicious!

  2. Haha, I didn't even realize you were from SF! Fantastic! (I'm a Bay native, too.) You guys should totally enjoy the warmer weather, though I hear it's cooling down a bit again already. Still, I wouldn't mind celebrating with some of this yummy salad.
