Asian Chicken Salad

An Asian-inspired mixture, with rice vinegar, soy sauce and ginger, does double duty as a marinade and a salad dressing. Dovetailing Tip: Use the extra pound of chicken you cooked on day 1 in today’s salad.

1/3 cup rice vinegar (not seasoned)
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons honey mustard
1 tablespoon grated peeled ginger
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 tablespoons sesame oil
1 pound skinless, boneless chicken thighs
1 small head napa cabbage (about 1 pound), cut into bite-size pieces
1 medium carrot, thinly sliced
4 scallions, thinly sliced
1/4 pound snow peas, cut crosswise into thirds
kosher salt
1/2 cup chow mein noodles

Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium high. Make the dressing: Whisk the vinegar, soy sauce, honey mustard and ginger in a medium bowl, then add the vegetable and sesame oils in a slow stream, whisking until combined. Toss the chicken with 1/4 cup of the dressing in another bowl; let marinate 10 minutes at room temperature. Remove the chicken from the marinade (discard the marinade) and grill until cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a cutting board; let rest 5 minutes. Meanwhile, toss the cabbage, carrot, scallions and snow peas with the remaining dressing in a large bowl. Cut the chicken into 1/2-inch pieces and toss with the salad. Season with salt. Top with the chow mein noodles.
