Notes

Sriracha sauce or barbecue sauce can be substituted for the gochujang sauce.

One pound medium cooked and shelled shrimp can be substituted for the chicken.

Reduce the gochujang sauce to 3 tablespoons for a dipping sauce.

A serrated peeler works best for peeling kiwifruit.

Lettuce Shopping Tip

Buy green leafy vegetables like arugula, watercress, and collards – they are good sources of vitamins A, C, and K and minerals like iron and calcium.

Lettuce Cooking Tip

Brighten up sandwiches or salads with small, tender leaves like spinach and add larger, tougher leaves like kale to soups and stews.
