This easy Asian Salad Recipe is definitely one of my new favorite meals. I can have this by itself, or with some chicken or shrimp for a low point meal that is delicious and simple to make. The addition of cabbage makes it a bit more satisfying than a regular salad would be.

I mix the dressing and salad together, but you can easily serve up the dressing on the side. With the lower point options, it is easier than ever to make this a full meal. A bit of grilled or shredded chicken really adds bulk to the salad and makes it a meal that is ideal for lunches or dinner. Plus, the flavors are great and make it a hit with the entire family!
