Vegan Crunchy Asian Salad



















While I love veggie packed meals, a lot of the time salads can fall flat if not done right. My ideal salad has to be colorful, contain a variety of textures, and combine both savory and sweet with a hint of heat for me to feel satisfied. (true story)



Cue the vegan Asian salad!



For the past few years I’ve been enamored with cabbage salads. Whether it be the traditional purple or white, savoy, or even brussels, I’m all about it! I find cabbage salads to be more fun, provide more flavor, texture, nutrients, are more filling and have better value at the end of the day. Your spring mix or even spinach will never hold up as long as cabbage in the fridge. 








There is so much I love about this salad, I could write a book lol. Its bright, colorful, affordable, effortless, filling, nutrient dense, packs multiple textures, so much flavor, it’s sweet, savory, and spicy! It packs healthy fats, perfect for any season, especially summer, the dressing can be used for a marinade as well, the salad pairs well with any protein, and hands down one of my favorite salads!





If you’re looking for the perf salad thats savory, sweet, with a  little bit of heat.. You have to try my vegan Crunchy Asian Salad!
