Asian inspired Chopped Salad 

Asian Inspired Chopped Salad

Taking inspiration from my local farmers market here in Devon and using Asian ideas and flavours, I wanted to create some bright flavours to nudge my senses awake in the cold dark month of January. As you can imagine, my local farmers market is still very much in its roots and pumpkin phase with it still being chilly outside but that didn’t stop me. Bright organic carrots that are crispy and full of flavour paired with red and white cabbage, spring onions and corriander. Toss that all together with soy sauce, sesame oil, lime, garlic and ginger. You have a true mash up of countries and continents like no other…Devon meets Asia! Now that’s what I call fusion food!

  1. Combine all the ingredients for the dressing. Stir until the peanut butter has dissolved.

  1. Hi, the colours of this look so inviting. I’m bored of my homemade coleslaw as I’ve had to much of it. This is a great alternative. I shall add the extras I need to my next shop to give it a try. Thanks for sharing, Chloe #FreeFromFridays

    1. Thanks for taking a look at my recipe Chloe.. it’s simple to prepare and delicious in flavour. Make sure you let the dressing infuse with the veggies to get the full flavour! Enjoy!
