The weather’s crappy out, you’re broke and you’re starving. If that’s not a typical winter night, lucky you! For the rest of us, takeout sounds ah-maze-ing. When the craving strikes for some Chinese food and you’re not in range of an open takeout spot, whip something up with these easy go-to recipes. Most consist of typical veggies (onions, carrots, snow peas and peppers), signature Asian spices, soy sauce and one main ingredient. So, in a mod nod to the coming Chinese New Year this Monday, check out our top at-home takes on takeout dishes!
No matter how hard I try, I can never seem to make a salad as yummy as a restaurant can. But this veggie mix with Asian dressing gives my local Chinese restaurant some competition.

The dressing is the best part with honey, basil, soy sauce and more.
