♦ Chef Ann’s Notes:

  • This Colorful Salad is wonderful for a party.
  • This recipe will serve up to 12 guest. Chopping each cabbage in half, will give you 4-6 guest servings
  • Ms. Dash seasoning works well for those who are unable to find the Trader Joe’s, 21 salute seasoning
  • My Colorful Salad is Awesome with or without meat! Vegetarians go for it and by all means enjoy yourself
Preparation before serving:
  • Combine all of your chopped and diced produce in a very large bowl
  • Add seeds, dried cranberries and nuts
  • Combine either meat of your choice to the bowl along with seasoning
  • Pour on the Sesame dressing and toss, toss

This crunchy mouth-watering Colorful Salad will have you coming back for seconds!

♥ Chef Ann’s Tip for the Colorful Salad: 

You can cut your prep time in half if you use a food processor. Cooking is therapy for me, so I love all the chopping and dicing.

Helpful information:

For those of you that have allergies to nuts and seeds, try grapes or tangerines.
