Hearty Late Summer Chopped Salad

  • 3 ounces cabbage slaw mix(contains  green cabbage, red cabbage, and carrot)
  • 3 ounces baby spinach
  • 1 rib thinly sliced celery
  • 1 cup well drained crushed pineapple
  • sliced almonds, as desired
 In large bowl combine cabbage mix, baby spinach, and celery.  Top with the pineapple.

 Salad Dressing
  •  10 T mayo
  • 2 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tsp honey mustard
  • 4 T honey
  • 2 T white vinegar
  • dash sircacha optional
In small bowl combine mayo, honey, mustard, oil and siracha.  Mix together.  With a small whisk blend the vinegar a tablespoon at a time until smooth.

Drizzle over salad.

You can adjust the amounts of the ingredients to suit your personal preference.  If you're not a fan of pineapple, mandarin oranges or diced canned peaches make a good substitute.
