We all know eating plenty of fresh salads is a great strategy for weight loss and your overall health. Yes, you can find chopped salad take-out chains practically everywhere, but it’s so easy to make your own delicious chopped salads at home with this salad bowl and mezzaluna chopper. Just throw all of your ingredients in the bowl and rock the chopper back and forth to chop up everything into bite-sized pieces. It literally couldn’t be any easier, and you don’t have to spend your time chopping each individual veggie with a knife and a cutting board. Plus these bowls are handcrafted and just so pretty—you can even use it as a serving bowl for guests!
I’ve taken out the guilt, but not the flavor by creating this Asian Slaw Salad. This salad makes a great side to tuna or salmon burgers or can stand alone as an entree when topped with grilled chicken. Unlike most salad greens, cabbage stays crisp even with the dressing. This Asian Slaw Salad travels well so it’s not only perfect for a BBQ, it can also be packed for a picnic or brown-bagged for lunch at the office.
