Ever since I made Nom Nom Paleo‘s Ginger-Sesame Sauce from her newest cookbook, I’ve been pouring it over everything – I use it stir fries, as a marinade for chicken, and most recently, as a salad dressing.
It’s so versatile, and I figured I’d share my obsession with you with a salad I made (and served with some simply roasted salmon!)
Salads get a bad wrap and they often get pushed aside as sides or reserved just for lunch. BUT, if you have a properly built salad, it can serve as a healthy dinner that will leave you satisfied – and with happy tastebuds.
How? Step 1 – a flavorful dressing. Step 2 – protein. and Step 3 – lots of consistency.
This salad has it all – the dressing, the edamame (and I served it with some flaked roasted salmon), and tons of consistency from the crunchy, fluffy kale and the soft carrot noodles.
If you’re looking for some salad inspiration, I hope today’s recipe helped! And, if you want even more protein, try some roasted tofu, grilled chicken, quinoa, or some chilled shrimp!
