Asian Inspired Salad

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!


  1. I have been in a salad rut, so this came at the perfect time! I love the addition of the edamame!!

  2. This looks wonderful! I think I would just omit the chicken.
