This looks fantastic and I too want to make this. Could you let us know please about the vinegar question? I think your recipes look amazing and are very excited to try them.

The only problem I have is what to make first :)

In the ingredients for your Asian Chicken Salad you list 1 cup vinegar. You say to add the vinegar to the carrots and later you say to add the vinegar to the ground cooked chicken. How much do you add to the carrots & how much do you add to the chicken?

The recipe looks great & I’d like to try it.

Thanks!
Donna

It’s the same vinegar for the carrots. Hope it works out!
