Chinese Chicken Salad Summer Rolls

  • SERVES: 8
  • PREP: 15 minutes
  • TOTAL TIME: 30 minutes

To enjoy year-’round—not just in the summer.

I loooove crunchy Chinese chicken salad and I love Vietnamese summer rolls, so I combined them into a beautiful Frankenstein of a dish. Refreshing and light, these rice paper-wrapped rolls are a healthier alternative to a sandwich or wrap, but they don't skimp on the flavor. Just like the salad from my first book, they're loaded with crunchy vegetables, thinly sliced chicken, and crispy wonton strips, but the summer roll version is served with a tangy, peanutty dipping sauce. Pack a bunch of them on a picnic, serve as a snack or app, or even eat them for a full meal because they're super filling.

For the Dressing:

  • cup peanut or vegetable oil

  • ¼

    cup rice vinegar (not seasoned)

  • tablespoons spicy mustard

  • 1

    tablespoon soy sauce

  • 1

    tablespoon honey

    tablespoon Sriracha

    teaspoons sesame oil

    teaspoons finely minced garlic

    teaspoon fine sea salt

    ounces cooked skinless chicken breast, shredded (1 cup)

    cup shredded carrots

    cup picked cilantro leaves

  • ½

    cup thinly sliced red onion

  • 2

    tablespoons toasted sesame seeds

For the Summer Rolls:

  • 8

    (8-inch) round rice paper wrappers

    cup crunchy restaurant-style wonton strips or noodles
