What a pretty way to serve an Asian salad. Perfect for a party and healthy recipe too

This summer has turned out to be a hard one. Last week we lost my Father in Law unexpectedly. We had spent almost two weeks in Singapore, where he lives. We were hoping he would pull through but it was not to be. Now that we are back we are trying to deal with the loss and jet lag. It is a twelve-hour time change and we averaged about four hours of sleep a night. This stress and tiredness gives a whole new meaning to needing a quick and easy meal on the dinner table. It has to be something I can make without a whole lot of thought. Brain power is at a premium right now.

Luckily this Asian salad is a “no brainer”. It involves just a little slicing and then layer all of the ingredients. A couple of useful tips. Pour the dressing on the bottom and toss when you are ready. It will keep the vegetables from getting soggy. Next make sure you place the oranges around the outside of the bowl. It helps to create the layers and looks prettier. That really is it.

I even got my daughter involved in this Asian salad. She loved the layering and the oranges. It even enticed her to try a little. If you follow my blog, you know that Ly eating salad is a big deal. She is just not a fan of lettuce yet. We are making progress though, I hope it is not overly optimistic for me to say I am starting to see the light through the tunnel. She is slowly coming around to those leafy green veggies. Whoopie!
