- Pairs well with Thai Beef Salad
- Chiffonade is a technique used for cutting herbs and leafy vegetables into thin ribbon strips. To chiffonade basil,for instance,stack leaves and roll them into a tube and carefully cut perpendicular to produce fine strips.
- Julienne is a technique similar to chiffonade,used with sturdier vegetables like carrots,that involves cutting a vegetable into thin strips or small,matchlike pieces.
- A bias cut means to slice not straight across,but at a diagonal (45-degrees). The cut creates elongated,oval shaped pieces for presentation and enjoyment.
