I am a sucker for anything labeled “chopped salad”, throw in a Chinese twist to that and I’m soooo making it! I added cooked quinoa to this recipe to bump up the protein, and yum!! This is delicious!!


1 head romaine

1 1/2 cups purple cabbage

1 1/2 cups snow peas

3-4 green onions

1 cup shredded carrot

1 red bell pepper

1/2 cup chopped cilantro

Optional: I highly recommend adding sliced/slivered almonds as well!
{For the dressing}

1/4 cup rice wine vinegar

2 Tbsp. sesame oil

1 Tbsp. tamari (or soy sauce)

1 Tbsp. maple syrup

1 1/2 Tbsp. sesame seeds

Optional: minced garlic or ginger

Chop romaine and cabbage. Place in a large bowl.

Slice snow peas and green onions. Dice bell pepper, slice carrots, and roughly chop cilantro. Add to bowl.

In a small bowl whisk together dressing ingredients.

Pour over salad and toss to combine.

Top with additional sesame seeds if desired.
