Asian Chopped Salad


1 romaine heart, chopped
2 cups shredded cabbage {I used the store bought coleslaw mix}
1 cup shredded carrot
1 red bell pepper, chopped
3 green onions, sliced
1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped
1 1/2 cups bean sprouts
8 oz. drained mandarin oranges {about 1 cup}
1/2 cup toasted almonds
Optional: Water chestnuts 
for the dressing-
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
1 tablespoon ginger, finely minced
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons sesame oil
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar (or plain white vinegar would work too)
1/4 cup canola oil
OR 2/3 cup Newman's Low-fat Sesame Ginger Dressing


Stir all ingredients together for dressing in a small bowl. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients for salad and toss with dressing. Top with more almonds if desired and serve immediately.
