Another home run from Real Simple magazine! I have to admit, when I first started my subscription and looked through the recipes in that first copy, I wasn’t sure if I was going to like the recipes or not. They all seemed too – well, simple. But I think that is their advantage. Few ingredients that pack a punch of flavor. This Asian Beef and Cabbage Salad Recipe ends up being not too complicated and seemingly simple, but when you take that first bite, you realize that simple is usually better.

I don’t know if I’ve ever had ground beef on a salad before – unless it’s a taco salad. But this Asian-style salad was delicious! And I felt pretty healthy after eating it for dinner. The only change I would make would be to either double the veggies, or half the meat. It was a lot of meat, and while it was good, the veggies are what makes this dish.

**NOTE – this recipe was updated doubling the amount of cabbage and changing amounts on a few other ingredients.**

    I love a good hearty salad with lots of flavor and this one sounds fantastic. Lately I have been loving Ellie Krieger's recipes, but I guess my inspiration comes from different places all the time. I do love simple recipes too and will check out this magazine!

  2. Pam says:

    This sounds great and it has been a long time since I have gotten the magazine. I will be getting it and thanks for the recipe!

    Dinner salads are the best, especially now that we are getting into warmer weather. I would probably double the veggies AND halve the meat. Because I do things like that.

    I really like the concept of this. I am in love with Steamy Kitchen's Beijing Beef – but it has noodles, something I don't always need. I will be trying this out – thanks for bringing it to us!

    I'm definitely bookmarking this…all those flavors sound so good together. And it looks sort of legal 🙂

    I really loved this salad. Very easy to make and it just had great flavor. This will be great this Summer when I'm in the mood for a salad that not only satisfies making something that doesn't require me to heat up the kitchen but is delicious too.
