Spicy Salad with Thai Chili Lime Dressing

A spring spicy salad with a hint of Asian flavors from the Thai Chili Lime dressing. The slight heat from this salad will wake up your taste buds.


The salad greens consist of @bright_farms beet greens and crunchy baby romaine. To this, I added tofu chips, roasted pecans, radish, bell pepper, lightly stir fried edamame, asparagus, cilantro and spicy serrano. Topping it all off is homemade Thai chili lime dressing.


The salad tasted fresh and definitely spicy with a hint of Asian flavors from the dressing.
