{asian salad}

a really great way to get your veggies and mix up the flavors! the peanut butter gives this a nutty flavor as well as a tiny bit of hearty creaminess.

{asian salad}
adapted from hungry girl
1 16oz package broccoli slaw mix (a bagged mixture of shredded broccoli and cabbage)
1 cup canned mandarin orange slices
2 cups shelled and cooked edamame beans (find shelled edamame in the frozen vegetable section)
1/3 c. cilantro leaves
2 tablespoons crushed red pepper flakes or 1 T. sriracha sauce
1/3 to 1/2 c. asian dressing such as Newman's Own Low Fat Sesame Ginger dressing. I used Central Market's Ginger Sesame Vinaigrette 
1/4 to 1/3 cup peanut butter.
{additional veggie options}
1 cup steamed broccoli
1 cup steamed snap peas
1/2 c. water chestnuts
1 cup steamed asparagus pieces
Whisk together pepper flakes or sauce with dressing and peanut butter. Toss well with combined slaw mix, cilantro and edamame. Chill covered for at least and hour before serving. Adapt to taste!
