HELP!! Chinese Chicken Salad Recipe - NOT the norm

Cascokat | Jul 17, 2009 01:52 PM

Does ANYBODY have, have access to, know where to gain access, or know how to find the recipe for the Chinese Chicken Salad made exclusively in the South Bay Area of San Francisco (by South Bay, I mean anywhere between San Carlos to San Jose)?

The salad does not have a "dressing" on it; there is no sweet, peanut sauce; I know it has hot mustard, cilantro, chopped peanuts (Tao-Tao's menu says almonds & cashews but I don't remember that!), plus the chicken, lettuce, and crispy vermicelli, but I'm not sure how it all "goes together" to get that special taste.

Any one who has had it, knows what I'm talking about. Tao-Tao in Santa Clara, Su-Hong in Redwood City, Mings in Palo Alto, China Stix in Santa Clara ... all used to make it. I am living in Texas now and would love to be able to make this salad! Outside of the South Bay, though, I have never seen it on a menu nor have I found a recipe.

Any ideas?

Thanks, ya'all!
