Editors Review

If you have some leftover roast chicken or shredded chicken after you have made a stock, this is a great way to use it. This Korean style salad recipe is very healthy and a great alternative to a fried appetizer at a party. It is basically a chicken vegetable salad with a spicy-sweet mustard sauce, but makes for a very attractive platter!
