Notes

No Almond Butter? or a Nut Allergy? Make this salad nut free by using tahini or unsweetened sunflower seed butter in the dressing. Omit the almonds and top with toasted sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, or sunflower seeds instead.
Mix up the Herbs: Chopped fresh mint and basil taste wonderful in this salad, if cilantro isn’t your thing!
Lower the Carbs / Make this a Keto Asian Cabbage Salad: If your carb needs are very low, omit the oranges and the edamame. You can add sliced red bell pepper if you’d like to add some more color and texture.
