Asian Soy Curl Salad

Asian Soy Curl Salad (19)

This is my new favorite salad. If I could only ever have one kind of salad again for the rest of my life, it would be this one.

First of all, it’s the prettiest salad I’ve ever made. It’s filled with all different colors from the greens, the red cabbage, the carrots, the red onions and the white sesame seeds.

Second of all, it’s got lots of different textures. The red cabbage is crunchy, the greens are soft, the almonds are toasty and the soy curls…well, the soy curls are just crispy and delicious.

Third, the flavors are out of this world. All the raw veggies are bright and yummy. The soy curls…well, the soy curls are spicy and juicy and did I mention, delicious? The almonds and sesame seeds add a nutty flavor. The dressing is balanced with sweet, savory, tangy and spicy.

Fourth, this salad has Butler Foods Soy Curls. That alone is reason enough to love it.

My Asian Soy Curl Salad is fast and easy to make. It’s definitely the salad to make if you have guests and want to impress them. This is on par with the big, beautiful salads you get in restaurants but better. Because it’s vegan. Because it’s gluten-free. Because it’s less expensive to make at home.
