Shredded Asian Salad with Kale, Snow Peas & Toasted Almonds

6 Comments

A salad that is perfect for Winter to show my sympathy for my snowed in friends on the East Coast….

Our last Winter in Connecticut was a lot like the one my East Coast friends are having right now.

So much snow. It never melts and you are running out of places to shovel it.

I feel for you guys. I really do.

In this salad shredded kale, snow peas, cabbage and carrots are topped with edamame and toasted almonds, plus a orange ginger miso dressing. It is perfect for Winter because it doesn’t have ingredients that are hard to find in cold places, but it also has a sunny Asian spin on it. Dress and toss your salad just a few minutes before eating to let it wilt the kale just a bit.

Hopefully this salad can help you think warm thoughts. It’s almost Spring!

  1. This looks fantastic. I’m sold.

  2. this is the kind of salad that has so many yummy components that i don’t even need dressing, but the one you’ve concocted sounds too delicious to skip!
