David Chang's Very Easy Tip To Add Flavorful Crunch To Your Salad
Next time you wind up with a tasteless or hard-to-make salad, consider Chef David Chang's advice and purchase an Asian snack mix.
On Instagram, Chang dumps the mix of seasoned peanuts, sesame sticks, rice crackers, and wasabi peas into a bowl of lettuce and diced tomatoes to give his salad a tasty upgrade.
If you don't have an Asian snack mix at home, feel free to use any snack mix or dry ingredients to bring textural contrast to the other elements you have in your salad bowl.
Consider the overall flavors you want to amplify when combining ingredients — salty foods can offset sweeter ingredients, while nuts and dried fruit complement the spicier tastes.
