The World's Best Fall Salad

This is my families favorite salad. I especially like to make it at this time of year because it has all of the Fall colors. And, OMG, what a killer salad it is.

I start by slicing red, orange and yellow bell peppers into strips.

I add lots of fresh spinach and bean sprouts.

I chop up a head of Napa cabbage and add it to the mix.

Then I add tons of fresh cilantro. We are big fans of cilantro around here.

I thinly slice a head of red cabbage.

In a separate bowl I squeeze the juice of 2 limes.

Then add 8 tablespoons of olive oil and 3 tablespoons of sesame oil. Do not skip the sesame oil because the flavor is essential to this dish.

Next, I add 5 tablespoons of soy sauce and 1/3 cup of brown sugar.

I finely dice about 5 tablespoons of fresh ginger.

Oops....I have a few pics out of place here. Back to the salad for a second. I add a pound of boiled linguine to all of the veggies. Rinse it with cold water so it doesn't wilt the vegetables.

To finish the dressing, I add 3 cloves of diced fresh garlic. Whisk the dressing to combine and pour it over the noodles and veggies and toss it all together using your hands. It's really the only way to mix salads!

Not only is this healthy but it is hard to stop eating! If you make this once it will become one of your favorites too.

I will be posting a couple of really good recipes in the next posts so stop back if you are in a Fall cooking mode.

Looks delicious. Salad is more associated with summertime, it is nice to have a salad recipe for autumn.

I have forgotten about your pasta pie. It is actually a great idea. It is just that we like our pasta well cooked and not al dente and i do not know how they will come out without the precooking(it says no precooking required on the box). Well, if it fails it fails. Otherwise we are going to have a yummy dish that is a bit close to jaz's cooking... Lets see! Thank you for reminding me of that recipe!
