I’m on a mission. That mission is to try one of the delicious looking meals posted on Pinterest at least once a week. Hopefully with my so-so cooking skills they will not only look like the picture but most importantly taste amazing. Of course failure will most certainly be a part of this little food adventure and on those days I will eat cereal. Buckle up kiddies this should get interesting!
Hola…Wait, If we are sticking to theme it should be 你好 ?
Anyhoo, our first yummy little number is… Drum Roll Please…
!Crunch Asian Salad!
So, today I’m slightly cheating. This IS from Pintrest and I did create this little yummy dish. I didn’t, however, make it last night, I made it for a girl party last Saturday and it seemed to be a hit!(people asking for the recipe = WINNING!) Besides, I happened to love it as well. This dish was very easy and for me that’s a MUST. I’m not one of those people that wants to spend hours cooking and have a huge clean up later, I would rather stick Easy Mac in a bowl and call it done.
Salad Rating: 8 of 10
What I love about this salad: It has a crunch to it, it’s inexpensive and it’s a little different from your usual salad.
