Happy St. Patrick's Day! Thank goodness for my last name, otherwise I'd be getting pinched for my way-too-neutral wardrobe's lack of green (besides my current mint obsession). Rather than wear green, why not eat green? You'll be pinching yourself over this dreamy salad with a color palette unlike any other. I sided with a vegetarian option for the occasion, but I highly recommend adding protein such as a soy-glazed salmon filet, shredded chicken, or coconut shrimp.
I must mention my sentiment for the salad's palm tree serving piece, which I purchased in Cambodia from a new friend. The whimsical market's flavor carries through the dish in unspeakable ways. Talk about Asian influence for this Asian chopped salad, eh?
