Litehouse Toasted Sesame Ginger Salad Dressing

I love big green salads that are loaded with various toppings. With my love of Asian food comma combining Asian flavors with a green salad is the best of the best for me! The nice thing is that my family also enjoys this salad because they get to build salad with the toppings that they like most.

Ingredients:
2 heads of romaine lettuce, cut into bite side pieces
1 can sliced water chestnuts, drained
1 red bell pepper, thin sliced or diced
4 stalks celery, cut in 1/4″ diagonal pieces
1/2 bunch cilantro, rough chopped
1 can Mandarin oranges, drained (Note: If you’re making your own Asian Salad Dressing save this juice)
1 avocado, cut into cubes
2 cups cabbage, shredded (Note: I prefer Napa cabbage, but any cabbage will do)
Peanuts, chopped
Crunchy chow mein noodles
Seasame seeds

For the meat eaters, you can readily add meat such as canned chicken, diced grilled chicken (especially teriyaki marinated) or shrimp.

Directions:
1. Chop and prepare each ingredient, placing in different bowls.
2. Have a stack of plates on the counter ready for each person to use and then build their own salad.
3. This salad goes great with egg rolls or pot stickers, both of which I have found good options at Costco in the freezer section.
4. You can certainly serve this salad as a side dish, for example if you are grilling chicken breasts or steaks if you want a lighter more tangy salad to accompany the grilled meat.

You can certainly make your own Asian salad dressing too, but we love the Litehouse brand Toasted Sesame Ginger dressing.
