ASIAN LIME CILANTRO SALAD

This is not my recipe, but from this site: http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2008/03/my_most_favorite_salad_ever_ever_ever_ever

I like this salad because it’s so colorful and flavorful 🙂 I did a couple modifications to mine… I actually made mine without the linguine noodles and put grilled chicken in there instead.  I’m sure with the noodles it’s wonderful.  I only did one bell pepper, because i’m lazy.  I also added less brown sugar (heaping 1 tbsp) and soy sauce (about 2-3 tbsp instead).. just enough to taste.   In addition, instead of 1 whole can of cashews, I just used a small handful of trader joe’s lime and cilantro cashews… which I LOVE in any salad! 😉 ps- this recipe makes large servings for about 4-6.

SALAD INGREDIENTS:

1 package of asian linguine noodles, cooked, rinsed, and cooled

1/2 to 1 head sliced Napa cabbage
1/2 to 1 head sliced purple cabbage
1/2 to 1 bag baby spinach
1 red bell pepper, sliced thin
1 yellow bell pepper, sliced thin
1 orange bell pepper, sliced thin (if available)
1 small bag bean sprouts (also called “mung bean sprouts”)
3 peeled, sliced cucumbers
LOTS of chopped cilantro—up to one bunch
1 can whole cashews, lightly toasted in skillet

DRESSING:

Juice of 1 lime
8 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons sesame oil
6 tablespoons soy sauce
1/3 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons fresh ginger, chopped
2 cloves chopped garlic (optional)
2 hot peppers or jalapenos, chopped (optional)
More chopped cilantro—LOTS

Mix together salad ingredients. Whisk together dressing ingredients and pour over salad. Mix with tongs or hands and serve on platter.
*Dressing keeps up to three days before serving, WITHOUT cilantro.
