Hands down, this is the most unique salad I’ve ever had.
Now, I need to talk to those people who say they don’t touch vegetables with a 10 foot pole – you need to get rid of that pole and grab 2 forks and starting shoveling this in your mouth.
This asian quinoa salad is amazing, and if this were an infomercial and I was trying to get you to buy this salad, I would promise you that you would like it or I would refund your money not 100% but double what you spent.
Yeah, a double guarantee because it’s that good.
Reason #2 that I LOVE this salad – you can feel good about eating it, unlike Snickers Salad (apples, cool whip, and snickers) which is so good but not so great for you.
When you eat this salad I hope it makes you feel like you shop at one of those crazy organic whole food stores (Hi Dad!) and then maybe you’ll start juicing and doing yoga. Or maybe you’ll just discover that you like quinoa, edamame, and red cabbage.
It might be easy to think that you’ll just skip the fresh cilantro because you don’t have it on hand, but it’s a key ingredient and adds loads of flavor. We almost skipped the cilantro and at the last minute we decided that we couldn’t make this salad without it, so Ryan ran to the store – just for cilantro (bless his heart).
This salad is very adaptable – meaning if you have additional vegetables you need to use up in your fridge, throw ’em in – even more reasons to feel good about this dish :-)
I can’t wait to bring this salad to a pot luck. I know everyone will enjoy its fresh, unique flavor and they’ll all think I am a health nut – yeah right, have you seen some of the desserts I post!
