This salad is one of my new best friends for so many reasons!

#1. It has napa cabbage, which is the perfect marriage between straight up cabbage and a slightly more understated lettuce that doesn’t completely overwhelm you with crazy crunchiness and that signature raw cabbage flavor.

#2. It takes all of 15 minutes to put together. Who doesn’t like a salad that they can assemble from fridge to table in less time than it takes to watch an episode of New Girl on Hulu?? Not that that’s a real life example or anything… just hypothetically of course… 😉

#3. It has chow mein noodles. Those mystical, magical, crunchy, all is well in the world when you eat half a can without anything else kind of noodles.

#4. The summer vibes are strong with it! It’s light, it’s fresh, it uses common pantry ingredients, and would be awesome paired with a grilled chicken breast and some watermelon!

This salad is made complete with a dressing of ginger, soy, rice vinegar, greek yogurt, and a few other tasty things! I was listening to a podcast yesterday about ways to maintain a healthy diet when eating out, and one of the tips was to shake up your favorite homemade dressing and bring it along with you when ordering a salad.

That might be a little extreme for some of you, but usually restaurant salads are loaded up with some not so healthy dressings, so it really is a great way to lighten up.

This dressing would be an awesome one to keep on hand at the ready for those situations or just for throwing a quick salad together like this asian slaw! It’s made lighter with greek yogurt rather than a mayonnaise base, and has just a little bit of honey for a natural sweetener.

If you’re looking for a delicious recipe for an upcoming occasion (Ahem, mother’s day, memorial day, etc…), look no further!
