Asian Style Salad

For the Dressing (modified from A Family Feast blog):
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seed oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
* I bet for a little extra protein you could add some peanut butter to the dressing.

For the Salad (modified from myfitnesspal blog):
  • 4 cups red cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 4 cups broccoli florets
  • 4 large carrots, peeled and grated or sliced into matchsticks
  • 1-2 medium red bell pepper, sliced into matchsticks
  • 1 cup peanuts
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
*  You could add kale or some sort of meat to this dish as well.

Directions:
  1. Whisk together all ingredients for the dressing (or put everything in a small blender and blend) and set aside until ready to use. (The sesame seeds will float to the top of the dressing so shake before each use.)
  2. Add the cabbage, broccoli, bell pepper, and carrots to a large serving bowl.
  3. Pour desired amount of dressing over the salad and toss until everything is coated.
  4. Add the sesame seeds and peanuts and toss again.
