Asian Chopped Salad

This delicious salad is quick to prepare and completely customizable to your personal tastes. I love the color and crunch of purple cabbage, and try to choose a rainbow of fresh vegetables to add – whatever I have on hand!

Quinoa adds protein and fiber to this salad, and I usually add chopped almonds or cashews for extra crunch. The simple dressing brings everything together.
