When I thought about publishing this recipe, I wondered what I would call it to make it stand out from any other chicken salad recipe that I had published. The salad didn’t really have a flavour profile that made it a ‘vietnamese’ chicken salad, or a ‘morrocan’ chicken salad, or a ‘mexican’ chicken salad. It was just like a ‘chopped’ salad.
What is going on with the world? I feel like I am in a little bit of a funk lately – what can you say when you just feel so awful about what’s happening in Ukraine? And you don’t want to be flippant and just roll out your content without mentioning it at all, but what do you have to add to the conversation?… I saw Lauren do an interesting batch of stories on Instagram that helped to give people a basic understanding of what was going on. But there was even backlash on that. I mean, can we all just be a little bit kinder to one another in these current circumstances? Isn’t that what the world needs? More kindness??
