Refreshing Thai Salad
After weeks of eating away from home, clean, fresh food is what my body craves. This last vacation was no exception and after three weeks I was ready to hit the kitchen. This salad is inspired by fresh Summer or Spring rolls. I love spring rolls...to me they are fresh and clean, and oh so wonderful.
I threw this salad together for lunch with some rice noodles I already had cooked. They only take a couple of minutes so they are great for a quick meal. I just chopped up things I had on hand and then topped it off with some TJ Soy Ginger dressing. It was YUM! So far I have had this for four meals, it's that good.
