Asian “Tuna” Salad doesn’t sound like a vegan recipe, but it is. The “fishless” tuna that I used for this recipe was Loma Linda Sesame Ginger Fishless Tuna. I purchased this product as part of my pre-vegan shopping trip. I wanted to make sure my pantry contained some simple ingredients that I could use to put together simple meals on nights when life is crazy. Anyone who regularly visits my site knows that I love to make salads in mason jars for lunch. Since I’m eating vegan this month, it seemed like a logical choice for an Asian inspired salad.
Shrimp Louie is another salad that I first learned about during visits to Castagnola’s Lobster House in Santa Barbara. The salad is simple to prepare, cool, crunchy, and very satisfying. The combination of the sweetness from the shrimp and the heat from the green onions and radishes tantalizes your taste buds and makes this a perfect dinner salad for a hot summer evening.
