They are such a lovely assortment of textures and flavors, and the ingredient possibilities are endless; say you stay strictly on the vegetarianside- you’re safe with a hearty salad packed with plant based protein (think spinach, legumes, tofu, barley.. the list goes on!)..  or packed with chicken, lean beef, or seafood- the carnivores, like myself, are winning, too.

The cafeteria here at work features a custom salad everyday, and with daily email blast of ‘lunch specials’ I ‘oooo and ahhh’ over what they have for the day- wishing I could spend my monies on a salad.  Today it is Chicken Taco Salad (complete with the big crunchy shell), yesterday it was Balsamic Salmon & Strawberry Cobb..


I suppose I should stick with my heated leftovers.  

Today’s CB salad is inspired by one of Asian decent- particularly close to it’s cousin- the slaw

Any of my CB people know my love for a good slaw.  Although this was served in the CB house as a side dish, it would most definitley suffice as a supper salad.

The dressing for this noodle salad would work on your favorite slaw- but two key ingredients you MUST never forget, whether this salad, or any other Asian inspired dressing: sesame oil, which is absolutely one of my favorite ingredients for finishing a dish, and ginger. The flavor of them together brings dishes to a whole other level.

So- in case you didn’t catch this, salads are my favorite thing to eat.  Or one of them at least. My palate is not snobby- I have a WIDE range of flavor preferences, but nothing beats a hearty salad. 

What about you?  Favorite thing to eat?
