Looking for a fun, healthy way to ring in the Chinese New Year (which falls on January 28th in 2017)? This recipe for Chinese Chop Salad is surprisingly simple to toss together, and tastes even better than something you might pay three times the money for in a restaurant.
And before you panic with the idea of chopping a whole bowl full of greens for this salad, tuck away that cutting board! Instead of spending lots of time slicing, we wanted to pull together a salad that’s as simple as it is fun to make. So this salad calls for our Good Cook Touch Food Chopper.
To make, simply slice the veggies into chunks, place chunks onto the base, fit the chopper atop, then press up and down. Just a few strokes and you’ll have a slaw.
A great way to get kids involved in the kitchen, once fruits or veggies are cut into chunks, this method requires no knives. Just set the chopper up and invite your kiddos to chop-chop-chop. They’ll feel like they’re playing a game, and you’ll have a happy helper excited to work alongside you in the kitchen.
The chopper is ideal great for cutting greens, herbs and is an especially handy way to chop garlic and onions–no tears required!
Once veggies are prepped, the chopper easily disassembles and is dishwasher safe.
