Chef Note:

This is one of those salads  Chef Haan Palcu-Chang can eat every week, indefinitely. It’s light, fresh, and nourishing and goes well by itself or with meat and fish. You can mix and match soft herbs that you like in this recipe, but this is the combo that very much works for Haan Palcu-Chang.
