Asian Vegetable Salad with Apricot Dressing
From: Melanie BurtisLast night we had an asian vegetable salad with apricot dressing that I made up on Sunday.
The basic recipe came out of the Veg. Times, but I made a few modifications.

1. Cook some brown rice (I used brown Basmati)

2. While rice is cooking, make the dressing:

  • 1/4 cup tamari
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/4 apricot preserves
  • 1 tblspoon minced ginger
  • 2 tsp. chinese 5 spice powder
put all these in a blender and blend!

3. Chop up some veggies of your choice, I used:

  • baby corn
  • snow peas
  • bean sprouts
  • carrots
  • water chestnuts
  • red pepper
Mix them all together.
Then server over a plate of mixed greens - I used packaged European greens that were dark and leafy, the good for you lettuce.

I made a big enough bowl of this stuff that we'll eat leftovers tonight with herbed foccacia.
