Asian Style Salad for Two

I hope everyone had a nice weekend. Last week I was really into making all different salads and decided to share my favorite salad and side dish recipes this week. This is a healthy recipe for a Asian style salad. It is so refreshing to have a bright colorful salad in mid-winter among all the soup and stews we are so used to eating this time of year. You can easily add grilled chicken to this recipe to make it more substantial for dinner.

Asian Style Salad
Serves 2

1/2 head of napa cabbage- chopped
2-3 cups chopped romaine leaves
2 ripe mango's- sliced
1 red bell pepper-slices
1 large carrot-sliced with a vegetable peeler
1/4 cup roasted peanuts
1/2 can mandarin oranges-drained
2 tbsp chopped cilantro
1/2 cup Chinese noodles-located in the Chinese section of grocery store

3 tbsp of Mandarin orange juice (leftover from can)
2-3 tbsp rice wine vinegar or any mild vinegar
1 tsp grated ginger
3-4 tbsp olive oil
Salt and Pepper

Mix all the salad ingredients from napa cabbage to Mandarin oranges together in a large bowl and toss with the dressing. Garnish with Chinese noodles and cilantro.
