3 cups shredded cooked chicken
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 teaspoons rice vinegar
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/4 cup roughly chopped cashews or peanuts
1/4 cup sliced green onions (white part only)
1/2 cup sliced mandarin oranges or clementines, divided
2 to 3 tablespoons finely chopped red cabbage
Kosher salt and pepper, to taste
4 large wraps or tortillas
1 cup fried Lo Mein noodles, for serving
Step 1: In a large bowl, combine the chicken, mayonnaise, rice vinegar, sugar, sesame oil, and Dijon mustard until combined.
Step 2: Season generously with salt and pepper, to taste.
Step 3: Fold in the cashews, green onions, half of the mandarin oranges (the citrus will crush; you want this to happen), and the chopped red cabbage.
Step 4: Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow flavors to marry. Taste and adjust ingredient amounts to personal preference.
Step 5: Spread a wrap with a dollop of chicken salad. Garnish with a few mandarin oranges and fried noodles and roll up, sealing with a toothpick if necessary.
Step 6: Recipe Note: This salad is equally good served in a large bowl or as a regular sandwich; garnish with remaining mandarin oranges and fried noodles before serving.
