“This is a super-easy pulled chicken Asian-style salad with Napa, carrots, sweet peppers, crispy wonton strips and a sweet and spicy dressing,” says Rach. It comes together really quickly, in part because she uses rotisserie chicken, and also holds up well if you make it in advance; just add the dressing and toppings before serving.  

Pro Tip from Rach: When shopping for Napa cabbage, pick one that’s nice and heavy, feels really firm and doesn’t have any scarring or marks on the outer leaves.
