Healthy, because

Even smarter

This salad is fresh, light, and the perfect side dish for your Asian meal. Often, Asian food is fried or contains a lot of oil. This salad ensures that you are still getting the nutrients you need from the healthy vegetables. 

You can omit the noodles for a lower calorie, lighter version. 


¼ cup low-sodium soy sauce
¼ cup sweet Rice wine vinegar
2 Tbsps water
1 tsp toasted sesame oil

Product recommendation

If making ahead, simply omit the noodles, refrigerate and add the noodles just prior to serving.

Preparation steps

In a small saucepan set over low heat, combine the soy sauce, mirin, water, sesame oil, and brown sugar. Heat, stirring constantly until the sugar has fully dissolved. Whisk in the olive oil and set aside to cool.
In a large salad bowl, combine the cabbage, carrot, zucchini, pepper, scallions and uncooked noodles. Drizzle half of the dressing over the salad and toss until well coated. Add additional dressing until the salad well dressed.
Garnish with the crushed peanuts and cilantro. Serve.
