As much as I love salad, I typically stick to my favorite stand byes and don’t venture out with interesting flavors nearly enough.
I am so glad that I broke loose with this Asian Citrus Salad. I would never have guessed that this blend of flavors would be so delicious.

My children call it the best salad ever! Yes, I know it’s a matter of opinion, but I’m just saying – you won’t be disappointed.
This has been a family favorite for years and I can never make enough of it.
No matter how large I make the salad, it’s gone….every time.

I wish that I could tell you exact amounts, but I have been making this salad for so long, I don’t even have an original recipe. Add the ingredients to taste.

  • Romaine lettuce
  • Radishes
  • Red onion
  • Grilled chicken or turkey (I add a bit of soy sauce on it).
  • Orange segments (typically, I use drained mandarin oranges for ease)
  • Slivered, toasted almonds (I tend to omit due to cost, but they really add a great touch)
  • Chow Mein noodles sprinkled on top

Tossing the salad in this home made Asian dressing is the ingredient that puts this salad in a category of its own. The beauty is that it only takes a few minutes to whip together. Why pay $10.99 for this at a restaurant when it will match any gourmet salad hands down? 🙂

My children will eat plates and plates of salad as long as this dressing is drizzled on top. I was first introduced to this recipe from the side of my PC dressing carafe. I could never share the recipe with any one since the exact amounts are not given, so I finally adapted it to our needs after years of being asked for the recipe.

ASIAN DRESSING
Add the following ingredients and mix when finished:
1/2 cup rice vinegar
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
1 Pressed garlic clove
2 tsp. Sugar
1 cup Vegetable Oil (I use canola)

Give this a try…your kids will even eat radishes with this dressing, and that’s quite a feat for any mom.

I told you I could never make enough. Our children literally take pieces of lettuce to wipe up the last bit of dressing.
