The Best Salad Recipe

My daughter introduced me to this wonderful salad and it's now a favorite with our family.  She found it on the Pioneer Woman Cooks website. It's packed full of vegetables with linguine noodles and an Asian type dressing.  Basically, you just cut up Napa cabbage, purple cabbage, spinach, package of bean sprouts, any color bell peppers you like, cucumber, cilantro, honey roasted peanuts, linguine noodles.   I like to add grape tomatoes, slices of apple, a can of mandarin oranges.  The sauce is 8 tablespoons of soy sauce, 8 tablespoons of olive oil, 2 tablespoons of sesame oil, juice of 1 lime, 1/3 cup of brown sugar, 2 cloves of chopped garlic, 3 tablespoons of fresh ginger, 1 to 2 chopped jalapeno  peppers.  It's a lot of chopping, but it's so very good.  We had our son, Chad, and his family for dinner and served it along with chicken and potatoes.

Yum. This looks great. I'm going to try it when I get back home. It sure looks like it will feed a crowd.

Look at all those happy faces.
