Quick and easy salads are a dream come true when you’re trying to throw together an easy lunch in the warm weather. And I’m always looking to branch outside of your typical salads which is why I have decided to make a no sugar added Asian salad! This salad is full of a lot of usual ingredients, just incorporated into one salad that you wouldn’t necessarily do. It’s easy to assemble, most ingredients you’d have on hand and you can serve it immediately for everyone to love.
I love make this salad for myself and especially for taking it to a BBQ, a party or other functions. It looks so pretty and colorful and it’s super filling and healthy.From the carrots to green onions, and edamame to the cherry tomatoes this salad is filled with a lot of yummy ingredients that mix so well together. But my favorite ingredient would have to be the mandarin oranges. It’ always the unusual ingredient that bring the whole dish to the next level and is really the cherry on top. With every single ingredient being put into this salad you are getting a mouthful of flavors and are managing to make a salad that has no sugar added into it!
Every good salad needs a good dressing. And this salad does not disappoint with the dressing that comes with it. I personally think that the dressing is what brings all of the ingredients together and amplifies the flavors from each individual ingredient. So make sure you go check out my dressing recipe specifically for this yummy Asian salad! I make the dressing very light and as always no sugar added. Healthy option for your salad because why ruin a good thing with store bought dressings.
