Veggie Chopped Salad

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by jenne

This is a knock off of a salad that we get at a local restaurant here in Des Peres, Missouri called Gerards. It is pretty close to his recipe and is a wonderful starter to a meal. I love the crunch and the soy in the dressing! Light and healthy!

I must be missing something but the salad dressing didn't do it for me at all. I did enjoy the variety of vegetables in the salad although after my first dish I skipped the lettuce. I also didn't have bean sprouts but I am fond of them so I'm sure I would have liked that as well. The dressing was far too oily though for my taste and too strong a soy flavour for me and I really love soy so I was surprised I didn't enjoy it more. I ended up adding more vinegar, some sugar and powdered ginger to try to make it more palatable but it just didn't work for me at all. I followed the dressing pretty close aside from reducing the amounts. I am thinking with the higher reviews, it must be just my personal taste. Made for team Mischief Makers, ZWT#7, Pacific Islands.
