I just love salads of all kinds. I eat them all year long. My husband made this Asian Chopped Salad this weekend and it was a huge hit. I can see it going in our regular rotation. This recipe makes a lot, so it would be great for parties. For the dressing, he slightly tweaked our Thai Peanut Sauce recipe and it came out great! If you love salads too, you may also like this post. I also have a post filled with salad dressing recipes that is worth checking out.
If you are avoiding soy, you can use green peas instead of the edamame. I also think toasting the cashews would give them an extra punch of flavor. This salad is vegan and gluten free.
