VANILLA TERIYAKI CHICKEN SALAD

VANILLA TERIYAKI CHICKEN SALAD

Have you ever tried vanilla with soy sauce for your teriyaki? You will certainly adopt it for your teriyaki from now on... I always have lots of success with this salad, especially for my buffets. It is very yummy, light, healthy but still filling which is not always obvious with a salad!!!

Wine pairing : Morgon (Red) from Beaujolais.
