SALAD INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 package Linguine Noodles, Cooked, Rinsed, And Cooled
  • ½ heads Sliced Napa Cabbage, Or More To Taste
  • ½ heads Sliced Purple Cabbage, Or More To Taste
  • ½ bags Baby Spinach, Or More To Taste
  • 1 whole Red Bell Pepper, Sliced Thin
  • 1 whole Yellow Bell Pepper, Sliced Thin
  • 1 whole Orange Bell Pepper, Thinly Sliced
  • 1 bag Bean Sprouts (also Called Mung Bean Sprouts)
  • Chopped Cilantro, Up To 1 Bunch, To Taste
  • 3 whole Scallions, Sliced
  • 3 whole Cucumbers Peeled And Sliced
  • 1 can (about 10 Oz.) Whole Cashews, Lightly Toasted In Skillet

FOR THE DRESSING:

  • 1 whole Lime, Juiced
  • 8 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 8 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons (up To 3 Tablespoons) Sesame Oil
  • ⅓ cups Brown Sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons Fresh Ginger Chopped
  • 2 cloves Garlic, Chopped
  • 2 whole Hot Peppers Or Jalapenos, Seeded and Chopped
  • Chopped Cilantro

Mix salad ingredients together. Whisk dressing ingredients together and pour over salad. Mix with tongs or hands and serve on a platter.

Note: dressing keeps for up to three days before serving, without cilantro.

  Now be warned, this says it serves SIX.  I think it could serve SIXTEEN! It made 2 HUGE bowls full.  Either plan to serve a crowd or half this baby.  I do not care for it leftover as the spinach gets soggy.

Dig in!

  1. What an interesting salad that packs a lot of flavors! I know I would love the dressing too. Thanks for sharing this unusual dish.

  2. Is it really, really spicy? I’m thinking I wouldn’t use all of those jalepenos…..I am not much for really spicy. Especially since they took part of my pancreas out….I’m more for greek yogurt these days. But this sounds good. Love watching your precious family, Tonya.
