So the roommate and I were talking about doing a chicken salad recipe in the vein of those Thai chicken wraps at Starbucks (which we love).

Instead of mayo, we'd use a coconut/peanut butter sauce. Not worried about that - just going to heat up some coconut milk and add a little peanut butter. But we're kicking around other ingredients.

So far we've got the following to add in:

-Red bell peppers
-Green onions
-dash of soy sauce
-garlic
-bean sprouts (if available)
-Cilantro
-lime juice (adding at the end)

any other ideas what we should add in there? Or maybe what we should take out?

Thanks!

Thai cooking almost always adds a lot of cumin, try that?
(I noticed you have the cilantro) What about a spicy pepper, perhaps jalapeno?

There are lots of recipes for cold peanut sauce noodles, with or without chicken. I'd just use the dressing from one of those. I like to use dry red pepper flakes for heat in my peanut sauce. I think you'll also find that fresh ginger would add a lot here.

Here's an example without coconut: Simple Asian Dinner - Cold Noodles with Peanut or Sesame Sauce

I'd put a little curry powder and honey in the sauce.

Along with some fresh ginger and brown sugar or palm sugar, utilize the soy sauce, garlic, and lime juice that you already mentioned, IN your coconut-peanut sauce. If it were me, I'd throw a couple of dashes of fish sauce into the dressing too. Soooo much depth of flavor AND that signature "Thai" taste from just a touch of fish sauce.

To the wrap itself (I've never had the SB wraps, so I can't reference those), your list sounds pretty tasty thus far. I'd also add some julienned carrot and chopped, roasted peanuts.

Sounds delicious!

Cumin is only used as an ingredient when making thai curries. In thai food, it's not used the way you are suggesting. In mexican and Indian - yes.

I agree about spicy. Jalapeno would be perfect.
