Asian Vegetable Salad

 

Asian Vegetable Salad

After a trip to Southeast Asia, I am all about Asian flavors and adding more raw ginger and garlic to my food. Not only do these ingredients add great flavor, they are also anti-inflammatory superfoods. Southeast Asian food is always simple, fresh, and has bold flavors, and that’s what inspired me to make this simple and fresh salad coated with a bold dressing.
