{MWW Asian Salad}

Asian Chopped Salad
Ah, summer meals! Cooking in the summer appeals to me so much more than cooking in the fall and winter!  I love to utilize the grill for as many dinner meals as possible in the summer time.  I also find myself making lots of salad variations for side dishes or even the main entree.  This week while grocery shopping at Meijer, I was in the produce department searching for the mixed greens we prefer when I stumbled upon a package to create your own Asian Chopped Salad.  It immediately caught my attention as I not only really enjoy eating Asian salad but I was looking for something new to add to our meal menu.

So, low and behold, I introduce you to the Taylor Farms: Asian Chopped Salad!

The packaging states the salad recipe includes:  savoy cabbage, green cabbage, carrots, celery, green onions, cilantro, wonton noodles, sliced toasted almonds, and sesame ginger dressing.

Assembling the salad took all of 5 minutes.  Inside the main packaging, there is a sealed bag that includes the wonton noodles and sliced toasted almonds and a separate pouch of the sesame ginger dressings.  I placed all the ingredients inside a large bowl that had a corresponding lid, placed the lid on and shook the bowl to mix the ingredients.  I made the salad approximately 30minutes before we were going to sit down and eat so I placed it in the refrigerator to chill while I cooked the rest of our meal.

When our brats were done on the grill, I simply had to place a serving on each plate...

...and enjoy my summer dinner meal of bratwurst, Asian chopped salad and a fresh blueberries, raspberries and blackberries.  It was delicious!!

On a side note for my own future reference, I would not mix the wonton noodles into the bowl with all of the other ingredients.  If you have left overs and save them to enjoy later, the wonton noodles will no longer be crunchy. (boo!)  In the future I will add wonton noodles to each serving when ready to consume.

So, I have to ask, do you like Asian chopped salad?  Will you be looking for this product the next time you're in the produce department?

Until next time...
Enjoy the moment. Cherish the memories. Give thanks. {Written by Faye 2014}
