This fresh-tasting, super easy salad makes a great side dish for an Asian meal! I love the salty-sweet-sour combination of flavors and the punch of fresh herbs…delicious!
I’ve made the salad a variety of ways. Sometimes I substitute lime for lemon, or green onions for the red onions. I’ve also made it with both mint and cilantro, or just cilantro. You can even use the bagged pre-shredded cabbage and carrot cole slaw mix (about 3 1/2 to 4 cups) if you want to save a little prep time.
The recipe only makes 2 servings so do your math to increase quantities if you plan on feeding more than 2. Enjoy!
