Asian Kelp Noodle Salad and Organic Girl Giveaway

I’ve got another tasty recipe for you!  Last week I was sent some products from the wonderful folks at Organic Girl.

iloveorganicgirl.com - good clean greensphotoI was really excited to do a little experimenting in my kitchen with the Five Happiness blend.  The five happiness blend includes baby bok choy leaves, baby red chard, tango, mizuna, baby arugula, baby spinach, baby green chard, baby green romaine and baby green oakleaf lettuce.  Organic girl has a wide variety of organic, fresh and tasty greens.

I had just ordered a three pack of Kelp Noodles from Vitacost.com and wanted to use those as well.  I was craving a salad on Sunday because it was finally feeling like spring and I needed a break from soups!  Kelp Noodles are a great, healthy, raw alternative to using pasta.  They are wonderful in salads or stir fries.  What’s great is that you don’t have to cook kelp noodles.  Just rinse and cut them to size!

  1. I love to personalize my salad. I put whatever I am in the mood for in my salad. Hard boiled eggs, avacados, onion crunch ….

  2. Feta is a must. I like all kinds of veggies but a favorite s a little dried fruit and nuts mixed in. Yum!

  3. My favorite salad is ANY salad…I love greens with tomatoes, blueberries, avocados, onions, and walnuts with balsamic vinegar for dressing 🙂

  4. My favorite salads are chopped Cobbs with lots of avocado and tomatoes. Would enjoy trying it with the kale mixture too. Thanks!

  5. I love having kale or mixed greens as my base, and then topping it with whatever fun stuff I have in the fridge!

  6. love the mix at costco of kale, cabage and other greens then toss on some grilled chicken

  7. I love to make an arugula salad with fresh orange segments, pistachios, dried cranberries, and blue cheese. Dressed with a simple pomegranate vinaigrette.

  8. i LOVE kelp salads!! i can’t say i have a favorite type because my salads are just always a big bowl of whatever veggies i have in the fridge, but i did find out i love adding fruit to my salads! so fresh!

    now i want sushi and a seaweed salad!

  9. Our salads are pretty simple. We just load baby spinach with veggies, throw a protein, usually chicken, and call it a day.

  10. I love salads with raisins, gorgonzola cheese and pine nuts with an olive oil vinegarette

  11. Love Organic Girl…I love salads and eat one every day. I am kind of ‘kitchen sink’ salad person…everything goes in! This looks delish!

  12. I love Organic Girl salad blends and usually top mine with deli turkey, avocado, cranberries, chopped apples and walnuts!

  13. cucumber, tomato, onion, dried cranberries, goat cheese, spinach, kale, spring mix & balsamic vinegar! YUM!

  14. Half spinach, half spring mix with strawberries, walnuts, blue cheese sprinkles and a light vingerette!

  15. I love salads! salads all day every day! I love spinach and kale as a base and then depending on the season I’ll throw in an assortment of fresh fruits/nuts/other veggies and of course avocado!

  16. Making your own fruit salad is not hard; you just need to prepare its ingredients. And the ingredients used are neither extinct nor hard to find, you can just whip out your wallet and make the march to the nearest grocery store.`
