Asian Crunch Salad with Peanut-Lime Dressing by Mom De Cuisine

I wish I could say I liked eating vegetables. No, I wish I actually did like eating vegetables. I crave huge bowls of pasta, covered in sauce, smothered in cheese (are you hungry now, because I sure as hell am). But alas, huge bowls of pasta, smothered in sauce, covered in cheese aren’t super healthy (and I’d still like to fit into my jeans, let’s be honest) so I must come up with ways to enjoy vegetables. I don’t mind a good salad, one that’s salty, sweet, tangy and maybe even a bit of a kick. More interesting to my mouth, I guess. Because if it has to be a salad for dinner, it has to be smothered in dressing and covered with crunchy stuff.
