Asian-Inspired Crunchy Salad

I love good and healthy salad with a dinner meal. Depending on what I have around in my fridge, I often experiment and come up with my own recipes. This is one of them! A very easy Asian-inspired salad with a lovely crunchy texture. It’s delicious, fresh, colorful and full of goodness.



  • 1/4 of small purple cabbage
  • 1 medium size carrot
  • 2 cups broccoli and/or cauliflower
  • 50g of salad mix
  • 1 avocado
  • Nuts (e.g. walnuts, peanuts,  pine nuts)
  • Sesame seeds to garnish


  • 2 tsp of peanut butter
  • 2 tbs soy sauce
  • Dash of water
  • Dash of olive oil



Grate carrot on a large setting, chop broccoli and/or cauliflower and peeled avocado and add to the salad mix in a bowl. Shred purple cabbage finely and scrunch it well with hands, add to the salad bowl.

Tip: I buy frozen broccoli and cauliflower mix which I use for various dishes. It can be easily defrosted by placing in the colander and pouring boiling hot water over.


Next garnish this Asian-inspired salad with sesame seeds and chopped nuts.


Now it’s time to prepare dressing. In a small bowl, mix peanut butter and soy sauce, and add a dash of water and olive oil until the mixture become a lovely runny dressing. Feel free to adjust amounts until it tastes right for your palate.


And here it is! This Asian-inspired crunchy salad looks lovely and tastes delicious!
