 I’m so happy to share this guest post with you for this yummy Crunchy Asian Salad from Elizabeth on behalf of ReadySetEat.


I love eating salads in the summer! What better season is there to enjoy a salad in, after all? Slaw is always delicious, too, and it’s fun to see how everyone puts their own spin on it. Some people use broccoli slaw, instead of coleslaw, and then others like to thrown in bell peppers or mustard. Kale slaw is nothing to sneeze at, either! Corn slaw would be worth trying, too. The list goes on and on. This Crunchy Asian Salad recipe is another variation of slaw, and it incorporates a number of ingredients to give it a great texture and flavor. Coleslaw, edamame, bean sprouts, bell peppers, and chow mein noodles come together to make this dish stand out.

This salad will pair perfectly with grilled salmon, grilled chicken, or almost anything else grilled!  The best part is that you won’t have to turn on the oven once to make this side.  Check out these dinner ideas if you want a little extra help in choosing the main course.  These pasta salad recipes are perfect for summer, too!

    I love Asian salads—a LOT. There is just something about them that make me want to ignore everything else that is available. This is a good version of that. It makes for a good summer salad, but for me its year round.
