Rainbow Salad With Creamy Avocado Dressing

Brighten up your day with this easy, simple recipe for Rainbow Salad with creamy avocado dressing. It beautiful…it’s colorful…it’s healthy and yummy!

INGREDIENTS

AVOCADO DRESSING

  • 1 small avocado
  • 1 cup yogurt
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 cloves garlic

RAINBOW SALAD

  • 1 head romaine - (or green leaf or red leaf lettuce or combination of all), cut into pieces
  • 1 large carrot - - grated
  • 1 cup pickled red cabbage
  • 1 ripe mango - - cut into cubes
  • 1 cup olives - - green or black

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Place all of the ingredients for the avocado dressing in a mixer and pulse until smooth and creamy. Set aside until ready to use.
  2. Arrange the vegetables and mango cubes per serving/plate.
  3. Spoon some dressing and serve.

Kani Salad

This quick and easy Kani Salad recipe is quite refreshing with sweet notes from ripe mangoes that is a contrast to the lightly savory flavors of Kani and creamy Japanese mayo.

INGREDIENTS

  • 145 grams Kani (imitation crab meat)
  • 1 medium carrot
  • 2 medium cucumber (or 1 large)
  • 1 piece ripe mango
  • 1/2 cup Japanese mayonnaise
  • half lemon
  • salt
  • ground pepper

NO JAPANESE MAYO? NO PROBLEM.

I tried to compare regular mayonnaise to Japanese mayonnaise to find out the difference. I find that Japanese mayonnaise has a stronger egg flavor. Well, that is because they use only egg yolks in making them.  It is also slightly tangier because they use apple cider or rice vinegar. Lastly, it has that rich ‘umami’ taste that you cannot find from regular mayo.

If you cannot find Japanese Mayonnaise, the next best thing you can do is make a regular mayonnaise taste almost like it. Just add a little apple cider vinegar and a bit of soy sauce to regular mayonnaise.

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Peel the carrots and trim off the ends. Cut into 2 or about 3-inch long. Cut into julienne.
  2. Do the same with the cucumber but do not include the core with seeds.
  3. Shred the crab sticks by hand by gently pressing a piece from end to end to loosen the strips and then separate each strip from one another.
  4. Peel the ripe mango. Cut the flesh into thin slices until you reach the core. Do the same to the other side of the core. Stack the slices together and cut into strips.
  5. In a large bowl, add the cucumber, carrots, Kani, mango and Japanese mayo. Squeeze the juices of half a lemon on top and toss.
  6. Season with salt and pepper as needed and give it another toss until all ingredients are well blended.
  7. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready. Serve on top of a bed of iceberg or romaine lettuce.
