What Goes in Asian Salad
One of my favorite things about this salad is the spectacular rainbow of fresh ingredients it’s made with. Here’s what goes in an Asian Salad:
- Napa cabbage & Red cabbage – I love using a combo of the two to add to the colorful abundance of this salad
- Carrot – just the right amount of carrot to add natural sweetness
- Fresh cilantro – fragrant and fresh, this is one of the key ingredients
- Celery – while not a big fan of celery, I have to say it does add a nice, juicy crunch
- Edamame – it’s super easy to pick up this protein-packed superfood in the frozen aisle, then heat and cool for this salad
- Asian Salad Dressing – make one batch of my delicious dressing and you won’t ever go back to store-bought
- Fried wonton strips – you can use as much or as little as you’d like of this topping
- Honey roasted peanuts – this topping adds a delightful sweetness
- Green onions
How to Make an Asian Salad
Prepare the Asian Salad Dressing
First things first, make a batch of my favorite Asian Salad Dressing.
Then, seal it up in an airtight container in the fridge while you prep the rest of the Asian Salad.
Chop the Vegetables
Next, wash and pat dry all the vegetables.
Then, slice both the Napa cabbage and red cabbage into strips and place it into a large mixing bowl.
After, grate the carrots, chop the cilantro and dice the celery.
Now add all of these beautiful ingredients to the large mixing bowl.
Add Asian Salad Toppings
Next, add the delicious salad toppings. The wonton strips add an incredible crunch.
Then, sprinkle in some chopped honey roasted peanuts. You can use regular peanuts, but honey roasted adds a tasty sweetness.
Finally, top with chopped green onions for a tasty, mild onion kick.
Drizzle & toss!
Here, you can pour the entire batch of Asian salad dressing over the salad. Or, you can use as little as you’d like.
Then, grab some salad tongs and toss the salad. Serve & enjoy!

What to Serve with Asian Salad?
One of the funnest parts of making an Asian Salad? Figuring out what to serve it with! Here are some of my suggestions:
Try making a batch of quinoa, brown rice, or egg noodles to go on the side. You can reserve some of the dressing and toss the grains with it for added flavor.
Make a batch of your favorite protein to add to the salad or on the side. My favorites: grilled tofu and tempeh.
I love having what Erik calls my “Veggie Buffet” for dinner. Try this salad with spicy ‘n sweet honey sriracha brussel sprouts, soy sauce-infused blistered green beans, or these hearty hasselback sweet potatoes.
