Whalin's Low-Fat Asian Salad

30 mins (prep 30)
23 ingredients
10 servings
A variation of Pioneer Woman's Asian Noodle Salad--noodles are optional in this version and I added herbs (mint, basil, arugula). Varied the dressing to make it lower fat. Crowd pleaser--it always disappears very quickly. All the quantities can be changed according to your wishes--eyeball the amounts and ingredients according to your tastes and what you have on hand. You can make this several days ahead and store in the fridge. Keep the dressing separate. If you are not serving it within an hour or two do not mix in the spinach and arugula to keep them from getting too crushed. If I manage to have leftovers I sautÃ�© the salad in the dressing and serve it over brown rice for a wonderful stir fry dinner. The dressing is amazing and will keep for a week in the fridge. I usually make a double or triple batch and keep it in the fridge to use in stir fries. If I am making this for a large crowd I leave the jalepeno's out and serve them on the side for people to add as they want.
