Expert Tips

Many supermarkets offer Asian-style dressings, but if yours doesn’t carry it, try this salad with a citrus or honey-mustard dressing. Be sure to check not only the salad dressing aisle but the aisle with ethnic foods as well.

Make this salad meal complete with a basket of breadsticks, a bowl of pineapple chunks and some fortune cookies for sharing.

Add a bit of crunch to this flavorful salad by sprinkling with chow mein noodles or other fried Chinese noodles.
