Summer is here, which means salad season is upon us. I am always looking for new ways to create healthy salads in the summer.

If you are looking for a delicious salad twist, you need to try this Crunchy Asian Salad! It is a yummy and easy alternative to a traditional salad.

Broccoli slaw, toasted sliced almonds, fresh cucumbers, and toasted crunchy ramen noodles come together to create a flavorful and healthy salad.

The toasted almonds and ramen noodles give this salad a delightful crunch!

The dressing combines soy sauce, olive oil, sesame oil and sugar to provide a sweet but savory flavor.

Top with your favorite protein. Chicken breast, shrimp or lean streak would all make wonderful additions!

I hope you and your family choose this salad the next time you need to mix things up a bit!
