For the Thai-style Chicken Salad

  • 4 cups shredded chicken
  • 1/2 cup sliced scallions
  • 1/3 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/3 cup finely diced red onion
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup chopped pickled jalapeno
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste

For the Rainbow Chard Wraps

  • 8 rainbow chard leaves
  • 2 cups shredded red cabbage
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 cucumber sliced
  • 4 radishes sliced


Make the Thai-style Chicken Salad

  • In a large bowl, mix together the shredded chicken, scallions, cilantro, red onion, mayonnaise, pickled jalapeno, coriander, cayenne pepper, and salt. Mix until well combined. Season to taste with pepper.
  • Refrigerate until ready to serve. This can be done in advance.

Make the Rainbow Chard Wraps

  • Prepare an ice bath and set aside. Trim the stems off the rainbow chard and discard.
  • Heat a deep sided skillet filled with about 1 inch with water over high heat until boiling.
  • Working in batches, blanch the rainbow chard leaves for about 10 seconds, then transfer to the ice bath. Dry the chard, using paper towels to blot any excess moisture.
  • Take two leaves, overlapping slightly. Place a big spoonful of chicken salad in the center, along with red cabbage, carrots, cucumber and radishes. 
  • Roll the chard leaves starting at the bottom, folding in the sides to seal as you continue to roll. Slice the wrap in half.
  • Continue wrapping until all the rolls are assembled. The wraps can also be made in advance in refrigerated until ready to serve.


The Thai-style chicken salad is also delicious in any wrap or sandwich! We also love it in tortilla shells, pita bread, and lettuce wraps!
