This month’s ReDux is a good one. I mean, how many of us try to stay far far away from the oven when those temps outside start climbing? This month’s challenge of no-cook meals
really made me think. Mainly because there are SO many good no cook dishes out there, where to start? A salad immediately came to mind. I thought, why not put a fun twist on a salad.
That my friends, is how asian salad wraps were born. You have all the delicious ingredients of a salad, all wrapped up!
The ingredients from this salad are actually inspired from my teens. In high school, my family and I would frequent the local Applebee’s. Back then, Applebee’s was the spot! Anyways, my dad and I love their oriental chicken salad combining cabbage, crispy noodles, toasted almonds, and chicken. My spin has those same flavors but with added sweetness from juicy orange segments and crisp snow peas.
Feel free to add chicken to my combo for a little added protein.
Asian Salad Wrap (serves 4)
- 8-10 bib lettuce leaves or green leaf lettuce leaves
- 1 cup coleslaw mix
- 1/4 chopped almonds, toasted
- 1 orange, segmented
- 1 tablespoon chow mein noodles
- 1/2 cup diced snow peas
- 1/4 cup peanut oil
- 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon sriracha
- 1/4 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
Mix together coleslaw mix, almonds,
oranges, chow mein noodles, and snow peas.
For dressing, mix together ingredients and allow to chill.
When you are ready to eat, lay out lettuce, fill with toppings, wrap it up and enjoy!
These came together in about 10 minutes…no cook and no time!!
Feel free to dip or drizzle this delicious dressing. The sriracha and red pepper flakes give it a slight kick which really boosts the subtle flavors in the wrap.
Can I let you in on a little secret? Being the blogger I am and searching for the best light, I actually made this in the morning for good lighting purposes, you know. After a taste test, I had to eat the wrap I made..for breakfast!!! It is that good!
A delicious and easy meal that you can have for er breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
What is your favorite no-cook meal?
