The sexy salad takes an Asian turn!

Can you stand another sexy salad? 🙂 Warmer weather calls for more green lunches–or green dinners! This tasty potsticker salad is an easy meal you can throw together quickly without sacrificing a bite of deliciousness.

Pick up your favorite dumplings. In my neck of the woods, I’m very happy with Stew Leonard’s. They make pork, chicken and veggie–pork being my personal fave. Of course, if you have the time and talent to make your own, so much the better.

Next, make sure you have your favorite salad fixin’s on hand and dinner is just a squeeze, stir, chop and saute away!

ORANGE SESAME DRESSING

¼ of an orange, squeezed
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
½  teaspoon sesame oil
¼ teaspoon sriracha (or hot sauce of your choice)

HOW WILL YOU MAKE YOUR POTSTICKER SALAD?
Start with spring mix, baby romaine or lettuce of choice, then add any of these:
diced red pepper
crumbled bacon
seaweed salad
sliced cucumbers
grape tomatoes
diced avocado
parsley
shredded carrots
chopped cashews or peanuts

Steam or pan-fry the dumplings and arrange them across the top of your salad. Drizzle the orange sesame dressing over the salad bed, then add a bit of ginger-soy over the dumplings. Make it your own…and make it part of your warmer weather dinner rotation. You can’t go wrong with a sexy salad.
