Nam Khao Tod (Crispy Rice Salad)

In this Night + Market dish by Kris Yenbamroong, spicy fresh ginger brings brightness and a pleasant crunch to this salad. Cooked and cooled rice is seasoned with curry paste and dusted with a generous coating of rice flour then fried until über-crunchy. For the crispiest result, chill the rice for at least 1 day before assembling.

Prosperity Toss Salad

Tossed with a sweet-tart and salty dressing made from umeboshi, or pickled Japanese plums, each ingredient in Danielle Chang’s version of this colorful composed salad has an auspicious meaning used to commemorate the Lunar New Year. Piles of cucumbers, taro root, and carrots are cut into noodle-like ribbons to represent longevity. Radishes, pomelos, and green vegetables like cucumbers are symbols of good fortune. Chang serves it as an appetizer to raise good luck, encouraging guests to use their chopsticks and mix and toss the ingredients together. According to superstition, the higher they toss the salad, the better their luck will be in the new year.

Any-Season Caesar Salad

A robust, creamy dressing and a few minutes on the grill help to tame chicories or sturdy—even bolted—lettuces in this bright salad. Swapping mayonnaise for raw egg means this dressing stays fresh in the fridge all week.

Chicory Salad with Cranberry Sauce Vinaigrette

Drizzled with a tart dressing spiked with leftover cranberry sauce, this vibrant salad is a refreshing reset after a heavy Thanksgiving feast, perfect for a day-after lunch. Leftover cornbread, crumbled and crisped in bacon drippings, adds the perfect touch of balancing richness. If Castelfranco radicchio isn’t available, use any chicories or bitter greens such as endive, treviso, or frisee. “Most of us only make cranberry sauce once a year, and there’s always leftovers,” says chef Brittanny Anderson, who shared this recipe. “A vinaigrette is the perfect place to use it all up.”
