Crunchy Sesame Salad

I love a good crunchy salad and this crunchy sesame salad really hits the spot! So much flavor and really satisfying. I love that the veggies in this salad last for a long time in the fridge because I always have great intentions of eating veggies really quickly but a lot of the softer veggies meet their mushy doom in my vegetable drawer. So I usually make this dressing and then can make the salad a few times over the course of a week or two. Which I prefer to eating the same meal like 10 times in a row. Haha. This is also a nice dish to bring to a family event or whatever you might need an easy dish to pass.

If you like this one, you’ll probably really enjoy our Thai Crunch Salad with Peanut Dressing too!
