HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - Brittany the Salad Girl introduces two salad ideas that will help keep you cool as the temperatures rise during the summer months.

The Hello Hanna:

  • 1/4 c. Cooked soba noodles
  • 1/4 c. Jerk jackfruit ~ I use a can of jackfruit which you can find at an oriental store. Seasoning ~ garlic powder, onion powder, dried parsley, cayenne pepper, paprika, salt, pepper, a sprinkle of cane sugar.
  • 1/4c. Mango salsa ~ mango, red onion, red pepper, cilantro
  • 1 oz. Sliced purple cabbage
  • Cilantro
  • Kale ~ be sure to massage kale, coating it with a small bit of oil. Helps with texture and taste!
  • Toss in a citrus vinaigrette of your choice!

The Tasty Carrot:

  • 1/4 c. Cooked white rice
  • 1/4 c. Pickled cucumbers ~ slice cucumbers, mix with rice vinegar, liquid aminos, crushed red pepper, little salt, tiny splash of cane sugar.
  • 1/4 c. Edamame
  • 1 oz. Shredded carrot
  • Green onions ~ chopped
  • Toasted sesame seeds
  • Romaine lettuce
  • Carrot ginger dressing or any Asian flavored dressing pairs will go great!
