Thai Crunch Salad

I love free wi-fi, don't you? Good thing my hotel here in Cebu has wi-fi, the downside is---I'm still writing emails after working hours. I'm taking a break to finish this post and send your taste buds to heaven with this deliciously refreshing Thai Crunch Salad from CPK.

I almost didn't make it...working till late as usual. The dinner was almost over when I got to CPK-Shangrila last Saturday, but the girls waited for me---friends need to break bread once in a while. I attacked the leftover pizza and pasta Jambalaya, and instead of the usual Original BBQ Chicken Chopped Salad, I ordered this Thai Crunch Salad.

It's a mixture of shredded Napa cabbage, chilled-grilled chicken breast, julienne cucumbers, edamame, crispy wontons, peanuts, cilantro, julienne carrots, red cabbage and green onions tossed with a lime-cilantro dressing. Topped with crispy rice sticks and Thai peanut dressing. I love the combination of lime-cilantro and Thai peanut dressing---scrumptious and zesty!

Try this one the next time you're in CPK.
