Asianesque chicken & rice salad
2 c chopped leftover roasted chicken
3 c leftover rice
2 large carrots, peeled & chopped
1.5 c snow peas, ends trimmed
Chopped herbs (I used cilantro & basil, about 1 or 1.5 cups total), as much as you like
1 T honey
1 T tamari soy sauce
1 T fish sauce
1 T rice vinegar or red wine vinegar
Juice of 1 lime, reamed well
1 seeded, chopped jalapeño
2 cloves garlic, chopped
Mix first 5 ingredients in a large bowl.
Combine remaining ingredients in a bowl or jar with a tight-fitting lid; stir or shake well until honey is dissolved and ingredients well combined. Pour over rice & chicken mixture.
Stir gently until combined. Serve cold or room temperature. Good for lunch to take to work/school.
