Asian Salad with Honey Lime Dressing

 Between a trip to the Asian store and my latest CSA box, my fridge was bursting with vegetables.  I decided to make a salad for The Blog Tech to take to work to share with his friends.  I sliced a head of napa cabbage, some bok choy, green onions, red and green peppers, cilantro, Asian basil and pea shoots.  I boiled 1 pound of Asian noodles and added them too.

 For the dressing, I put 5 tablespoons of honey, the juice of 5 limes, 1/4 cup of sesame oil, 1/2 cup of canola oil, 3 tablespoons of soy sauce, 1/4 cup of rice vinegar and some minced garlic and ginger in a jar.  Shake it until combined, taste it and adjust seasoning then pour it over the salad. Depending on the size of your limes you might need to add more honey and oil.

Toss it and let it sit for a while and toss it again.  Since there is so much cabbage in this, it needs to wilt a bit.
