    Charliecooks's Note:

    Not at all authentic and decidedly Westernized, but beautiful to serve and fun to eat. Essentially a summer salad meal, it is also great in winter with a steaming bowl of noodle soup and a cooling citrus yoghurt to follow. I am quite often lazy enough to take out a small rotisserie chicken and use it without skin and bones instead of grilling the breasts. The optional chillies, without or with seeds, determine the degree of heat you desire or your guests can handle.
