Crunchy Asian Salad with Yogurt Lime Dressing

Crunchy Asian Salad with Yogurt Lime DressingI am so excited about this salad!!  Why? Because my family loves it!  When my family gets excited by the food I make them, I get excited.  They were actually talking to each other about it!  Crunchy Asian Salad with Yogurt Lime Dressing was a buzz in our home.  Buzzzz!  I actually overheard Luke my “particular” eater (not picky, just particular) saying to his sister (my undiscriminating eater) “did you have that salad mom made? MMMmmMh! it was so good, except for the oranges, I picked them off.”  See? Particular.

I think it’s the crunch!  Oh and the cheese….we love us some cheese!  And quite possibly the creamy dressing with Asian flavors….we also love Asian flavors!

Crunchy Asian Salad with Yogurt Lime DressingBy adding a protein, such as grilled chicken, you can make this salad into a meal, but believe me it is perfect as is, no meat required!


Crunchy Asian Salad with Yogurt Lime DressingSalads run a close second, in our home, to crock pot meals for those nights when we can’t all make it to the table at the same time.  It’s easy to have a salad all ready in the refrigerator, so all they need to do is pull it out, plate it up, and enjoy a healthy meal.


Crunchy Asian Salad with Yogurt Lime DressingThe dressing on this salad was good enough to drink….can you say salad dressing smoothy?!  Ok,  well maybe you wouldn’t want to drink this dressing but you will defiantly want to drowned your salad in it.  Even my husband who eats his salads like a rabbit, sans condiment, loved it.  Although truth be told I poured the dressing on my salad, and he drizzled, who is this man?!  The plain greek yogurt adds the perfect creaminess while adding additional protein and calcium to your diet…unless you drizzle, well then you’re just plain missing out on the benefits!

      Hmmmm, if it tastes good I wouldn’t worry. You could add more cilantro and see if this greens it up.
