Asian style mega salad

We were having on of *those* nights and figured today was a day for takeaway. After getting the kids into bed and flicking through the menus, Dave realised that takeaway options really aren’t going to be anywhere near as healthy or tasty as something we would make :).

So this is what he came up with! A colourful, extremely tasty, healthy crunchy salad with a delicious Asian dressing.

What is in the salad you ask?

Mixed leaf lettuce

wombok cabbage

Capsicum – red and yellow

Carrot – slithered

Brocolli – little florets


Fried shallots


2 cloves garlic, minced

2cm of ginger, minced

1 leek, diced

1/4 tsp ground chilli

1 T dark soy sauce

1 tsp tamarind paste

1 tsp rice malt syrup

Juice of half an orange

1 t rice wine vinegar (splash of)

Saute the garlic, ginger, leek and chilli in coconut oil. Add in the remaining ingredients and simmer until slightly reduced. Add in some water until you are happy with the consistency of the dressing.

This is a seriously lovely salad. Dave has told me the ingredients of the dressing but I have to say, he’s like me and makes up recipes so feel free to alter it to whatever suits your tastes and requirements. Enjoy!
