Fresh fresh fresh! This Island Dreams Salad Recipe is very fresh and light. This salad is a little like coleslaw in the sense that it has cabbage. After that, the similarities stop. It has a wonderful aroma with the sesame oil and Asian flavors. Your friends will love you when you bring this to your next picnic or pot luck.
1 cup Mixed Peppers (red, yellow, orange) (thinly sliced)
1 bunch Green Onions (thinly sliced)
1 bunch Cilantro
1/2 Large Yellow Onion (thinly sliced)
1/2 cup Chinese Rice Crackers with Nuts Mix ((optional))
This recipe can be any combination of cabbage and other vegetables. The above list is just what I used when I made it and it was great. But, use what you have and don’t fret.
In large bowl, add all the vegetables. In a separate bowl, combine the liquids: juice, soy sauce, sesame oil and rice wine vinegar. Toss the salad with the dressing and let it set for about 10 minutes. Serve.
Make it just for you!
Notice that the dressing is all equal parts, so use 1 Tbl of each juice, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar and sesame oil for your personal salad. Put whatever vegetables you have. You can use regular cabbage (what I used) or Nappa Cabbage. You can also try adding shredded broccoli, thinly sliced bok choy, or whatever you have on hand.
For a pot luck, make it in advance
Just put the veggies in a large zip lock back and the dressing in a plastic container and toss at your party.
