This Crunchy Asian Salad is a flavor explosion in your mouth with red peppers, carrots, snow peas, edamame, and sweet oranges nestled on a kale broccoli mixture drizzled with a sesame ginger dressing.
You may be wondering why I haven't been posting as much this month - well, not to be a whiner but I have been sick and it has been no fun. I picked up some nasty virus that has left me with no energy, fever at times and a cough that sounds like I'm barking. People hear me and run the other way! I went to express care at work and they said everyone has it and it could last 2-3 weeks. Well, it is really hard to be a food blogger when you don't even want to eat. I think I'm on the mends though and was really craving something healthy to help me boost my immune system.
I'm a fan of salads that have lots of stuff and uses fresh ingredients. I was wandering around Trader Joe's the other day and these ingredients were just jumping out to me and begging to be in my cart. It definitely did not disappoint and was a great way to get back on track for healthier eating. I just want to get better!
You might want to add some cooked cubed or shredded chicken to make it a complete meal and think I will try that next time. I was also thinking that some cooked cold noodles would work too. Earlier this month I started eating healthier with this Fresh Fruit Arugula and Quinoa salad. Be sure to check that out for another healthy meal option.
