  • 1 Tbsp fresh ginger grated (to taste)
  • 1 clove garlic finely minced

Colorful Crunchy Salad (1 serving)

  • 2 cups mixed greens
  • ¼ cup shredded carrot
  • ¼ cup shredded purple cabbage
  • ¼ avocado cubed
  • 2 Tbsp crunchy noodles
  • 1 Tbsp sesame seeds

Notes

Note on Oils: 

*If you plan to cook with this dressing (i.e. as a marinade), be sure to use a high smoke point oil!
Extra-virgin olive oil has a low smoke point—meaning it will release toxic byproducts when heated above a certain temperature, and it is best used on cold dishes like salads. For cooking, use high smoke point oils like light or extra-light olive oil, or avocado oil.
