Lettuce and Carrot Salad With Sweet and Sour Dressing

  • Difficulty: Ultra Basic

For this salad, tossing healthy Romaine lettuce, carrot, and spring onion in a bowl is just part of the fun. The dressing is the real highlight here because we mixed strong umami ingredients like wasabi, soy sauce, honey, and sesame oil. This is real “health in a bowl” or should we say, “health in a glass”? Because we’ve chosen to serve it in glasses rather than bowls.
