Great China salad question

So, it's been awhile since I've had lunch at Great China in Berkeley, and I am working to remember what greens are in the salad there. Because, of course, I'm looking to do a recreation. Any suggestions?

  1. Do you mean the double skin? Pretty sure it's just carrots (not green, I know) and cucumber. Picture attached.

      I believe comedor's talking about the house salad that comes with the lunch specials.

        Just goes to show that I've never been there at lunch.

    2. I think they use pea shoots, carrot, and cabbage in the salad with the lunch plates and in the larger chicken salad. The salad is served with a sticky, sweet dressing.

        Robert's right about which salad. And I think the pea shoots are the dark green gap in my memory! Thank you all for the help.
