Karl’s Chinese Chicken Salad

Chinese/Asian Chicken Salad is a popular dinner salad at my house. Of course, like chop suey, this is a truly American dish and you would never find anything like it in China.

The dish called callalloo is the name given to two completely different dishes, depending on whether it is made in Jamaica or Trinadad. In Jamaica the main ingredient is usually amaranth and it is usually simply steamed with a few aromatic ingredients. In Trinidad the main ingredient is usually taro leaf, which they stew with okra and coconut milk.
