Triple Crunch Asian Salad

Watermelon radishes add a splash of color to this crisp, refreshing salad.

Last week, I introduced you to Dumplingpalooza with these Deep Fried Roasted Garlic Mac & Cheese Dumplings. They’re pure evil in the best possible (cheese-filled, carb-laden) way.

When me and my friend Joanne were planning our recipe list, we had intended to make 4 different types of dumplings. But alas, after making a batch of our own dumpling wrappers plus stuffing, baking and deep-frying about a hundred other dumplings, we were too burnt out in the mood for something a bit lighter.

And that’s how this recipe was born.

We used the rest of the choy sum from the mac & cheese dumplings along with some watermelon radishes that I had picked up at my local Farmers Market and a can of water chestnuts that I had in the pantry.

Ha… “pantry” makes it sound like I have actual storage space. Definitely not the case. But I digress…

This salad totally hit the spot. The dressing has a sweet-and-salty balance that’s perfumed with lime and sesame. The watermelon radishes were just sooooo pretty, and the crunchiness of all 3 salad components really woke us up after going into a dumpling coma.

You know, just in time to make MORE dumplings for dessert. We don’t go around calling just anything a “palooza”, after all!
