Salad types wise, the choice is wide and you could use so many types depending on the season and availability but I particularly like the crunchy Chinese cabbage and you could add some red or green pepper, edamame beans, avocados, some nuts such as cashew or walnuts nuts and if you use cashew nuts I would definitely go for a peanut dressing (yuuuumm).
Add some herbs such as dill, parsley, basil, coriander or whatever you like and fancy.
For a peanut dressing you can use peanut butter, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, soy sauce, honey, some garlic if you like and can have, fresh ginger – wow, what a burst of freshness - my mouth is watery and I feel really hungry now. ?
