Recipe: Chinese chicken salad by The Cheesecake Factory

We realise the headline may seem, to the untrained eye, to be a bit of a contradiction, but The Cheesecake Factory, which you can find in malls across the UAE, serves an awful lot more than just cheesecake – and it does it well.

And, thankfully, while we’re spending more time at home, it has made recipes available online for us to try and recreate their dishes in our own kitchens.

As well as cinnamon swirl pancakes and Korean cauliflower wings, the eatery has also unveiled a recipe for a Chinese chicken salad, and it looks magnificent.

Here’s how you can make this zesty, flavoursome salad at home, with ease.
