From the Test Kitchen

For six weeks, Blue Apron is thrilled to team up with Chrissy Teigen, author of the best-selling cookbook, Cravings, to bring you some of her favorite, insanely delicious recipes. To give this Chinese chicken salad its satisfying crunch, fresh wonton noodles are baked to golden perfection, then tossed with more tender noodles, chicken, and veggies in a sweet and savory sauce.

Combine in a large bowl. Peel and finely chop the shallot to get 2 tablespoons (you may have extra). Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice, separating the white bottoms and green tops.
