Warm Asian Salad.

Warm Asian Salad.

This warm Asian salad is an eating sensation! Sweet and spice, warm and cool, and soft and crisp. I absolutely love South East Asian flavours. One of my favorite places to eat out is Wagamama and I developed this recipe from a dish I had in there. The combination of the soft roasted vegetables, crunch from the raw veg, the combination of warm and cool and the amazing dressing (which has a kick!) makes this a great eating experience. You can buy Shichmi easily online.
