Garden to table! Let us visit Asia, if you dare!
Gardening can be so fun from your back yard or the Farmer’s Market.
Let me introduce you to an Asian style salad.
Rinse and towel dry baby spinach about 6 cups.
15 ounce can of mandarin oranges
sliced red onion or scallions cut into 1 inch pieces
1/2 of a red bell pepper
diced water chestnuts
For the dressing:
combine 1 tablespoon of sesame oil
3 tablespoons of canola oil
2 teaspoons of Dijon mustard
juice of half a lemon
tablespoon of honey
a splash of water.
At the very end add 2 teaspoons of toasted sesame seeds to the dressing.
For a little bit if texture, add chow mein noodles to the top of salad.
