Wasabi peas on a salad?

Oh. My.  Gosh.  Yes, yes, and yes!

Seriously, I don't even know what to say about this.  I mean, what did Leonardo DaVinci have to say about the Mona Lisa?  Okay, that may be a bit of a stretch.  Let's just say I love it, I'm eating it now, I'll be eating it for the rest of my life, and I think that you should, too!

Wasabi Pea Salad with Sesame Dressing

Sesame Dressing
Yield: about 1 1/2 cups
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup rice vinegar
3 tbsp sugar
2 cloves garlic, crushed
4 tbsp sesame oil
1/2 tsp ginger, minced or grated finely
1/2 tsp sriracha ("whaddya put that in everything?"  Yes, yes, I pretty much do)
1/2 cup olive oil

Combine all ingredients except for olive oil.  Slowly stream in olive oil while whisking.  Store in airtight bottle in fridge for up to two weeks.


Spring Mix
Red and Green Onions
Wasabi Peas
Edamame (if you have it, I didn't)

What can I say?  It's a salad!  The only rule here is to add the avocado last, so it doesn't get all mashed up when you combine.  Otherwise, just do your thing! 


  1. Hi Jenny, I don't post on the CF, but I saw your blog link yesterday. Today when I found out your thread had been pulled I asked why. I'm still trying to find out why it's ok for some to link to their blogs and not others. Did they tell you why your thread was pulled? I would have emailed you, but you don't have that option on your member page.

    Your sesame dressing sounds awesome! Copying and pasting ...
