This recipe was printed in Coastal Living Magazine. It was called Amansala Salad with Ginger-Sesame Dressing, after the Amansala Resort and their Bikini Bootcamp. This salad is delicious and a wonderful mix of colors and textures. Enjoy!

We loved the fresh ingredients that make up this salad! You do need to eat it right away though, as it didn't hold up for DH when he got home from work. I'll be sure not to add in the dressing if we can't all eat together next time. ;) The only changes I'd make are to replace the balsamic vinegar with either an apple cider or rice wine vinegar. I thought the balsamic was overpowering and didn't allow the other ingredients to shine. I used both green and purple cabbage with chicken as the meat, but otherwise made as directed. Thanks for sharing, DSimone! Made & enjoyed for Spring 2010 Pick A Chef. You've been adopted! :)
