Seems like it’s been a while since we’ve had a salad around here so I think it’s about time! Plus, what I’m really craving right now involves a pound of butter and some serious chocolate action so I’m thinking if I blog about salad I just might eat one. I’m sure everyone has some sort of go-to Asian salad. I have three. And I love them all for different reasons. So here’s my “Oh Dear Asian Salad #3 (in order of how said salads entered my life) how do I love thee? Let me count the ways…” list:

  1. It’s flexible.You can toss anything in it that you think would be good.Whatever veggies you happen to have on hand. It’s one of those ‘clean out the fridge’ salads.
  2. It keeps well.Lettuce salads get wilted and gross the longer they sit, but this salad only gets better, which makes it a great option for a party, potluck, or picnic.
  3. It’s easy to make a huge batch or just enough for two.
  4. It’s quick.It starts with a pre-packaged bag of coleslaw, so you save time chopping.Plus you can prepare everything ahead of time and just throw it together when you’re ready.
  5. It’s healthy.No really, it is. Duh, you say? Not all salads are healthy. (Wait until I give you Asian Salad #1.) This one is full of fresh vegetables and the dressing has very little oil (pretty rare) so it’s very low-calorie.


It’s as pretty as it is delicious!

Leave out the chicken and it makes a great vegetarian salad, or a terrific side dish for things like potstickers, Asian BBQ chicken, or Sweet and Sour Pork. Serve it with the chicken for a light meal.

Serves 4 main dish servings, or 6 side salads.
