Asian Inspired Salad
I love salads but a lot of times I fail to branch out in my selections. I gravitate towards spinach, feta, strawberry, onion, walnut. You know that old go-to.
This asian inspired salad was just what I needed to get out of my salad rut. It's full of flavors and textures and topped with my favorite ginger dressing which I find chillin' in the produce section.
Aren't the colors gorgeous? Talk about eating with all five senses.
1/3 grilled chopped chicken (use deli or precooked to save time!)
1 cup arugula, washed
1 cup shredded cabbage, washed
1/3 cup shredded carrots
1/4 red onion, sliced
1/4 shelled edamame
1/3 cup cooked rice noodles
several slices seedless mandarin oranges
2 tbs. chopped walnuts
2 tbs. ginger salad dressing
I'm guessing y'all know how to assemble a salad so I'll spare you instructions. I think the photo is pretty self explanatory. I hope you like it!
