  • ½ cup edamame shelled

  • ½ cup sliced mandarin oranges
  • Lime Ginger Dressing (see recipe below)
  • ½ cup chow mein noodles
  • Ginger Miso Salmon (see recipe below)

Lime Ginger Dressing

  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 tsp rice vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp minced ginger

Miso Salmon

  • 1 lb. salmon, skin removed
  • ½ Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp grated fresh ginger
  • 2 Tbsp miso paste
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • ½ Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp rice vinegar

Asian Ginger Miso Salmon Salad

  • In a large bowl, mix together kale, red cabbage, red pepper, shredded carrots, avocado, edamame, Thai chili, and mandarin oranges. Toss with Miso dressing.
  • Serve salad in individual bowls and top with chow mein noodles, sliced miso salmon, and lime wedges.

Lime Ginger Dressing

  • In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together all ingredients. Keep in fridge if not using immediately.

Ginger Miso Salmon

  • In a small bowl, whisk together extra virgin olive oil, grated ginger, miso paste, honey, soy sauce, and rice vinegar. Place the salmon in a baking dish and brush with the miso mixture.
  • Cover baking dish with plastic and place in refrigerator for about an hour.
  • Heat oven to broil.
  • Broil the salmon for about 6 minutes, flip over and broil for another 6 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and sprinkle with sliced scallions and sesame seeds.


  • Don't forget that the salmon needs to marinate for an hour; I recommend getting the salmon in the marinade and assembling the rest of the salad and dressing while it's in the fridge.
