chinese chicken salad

one of david’s requests was chinese chicken salad.  it’s definitely one of my favorites too.  david first had chinese chicken salad when he came home to hawaii with me for new years back when we were in college.   it was such a fun trip. we walked to see the lava coming out of the volcano, played with fireworks, and more.  he also got to try all of the crazy food that we eat in hawaii.  haha.  that’s actually what inspired the menu for today’s lunch.  he said that he wanted to have some of the local food he had when he was in hawaii.  so i made this, fried rice with spam, and gyoza which i’ll post about next…
