Yes spring has started which means that bikini season will be here before we know it. Hmm, that means less bulky sweaters more salads… So you’re quite tired of the regular salads. So am I. I’m tired of just having mixed greens with veggies. So I figured that I could make some oriental salad, but it’s not very healthy with those ramen noodles, besides the fact that they aren’t gluten free. No worries, we’ll just leave them out. Don’t you worry, this salad has so much flavour and crunch that you won’t miss them.
This salad has also been made into a super healthy salad by using half kale with the cabbage. The ginger sesame dressing tastes fantastic! Now you can easily take this salad to a gathering and listen to everyone rave about how delicious it is! You can also chop up all the vegetables on Sunday so that you can enjoy this salad all week long. Just don’t add the almonds or dressing until that morning.

Mix all the vegetables together in a large bowl. If making the whole salad to consume in the next couple of hours mix in almonds and dressing. Store salad in sealed container in the fridge for up to five days.
If you’d like to enjoy this salad at work over the next five days then do not add dressing or almonds until that morning. In the morning, put a little dressing into the bottom of your lunch size container, top with almonds. Do not mix until you’re ready to eat.
