Notes:

  • I threw this salad together using what I had in my refrigerator. I used Spring Mix, but any combination of lettuces and cabbage works perfectly!
  • The chili pepper flakes add a touch of heat to the salad dressing, but not too much. For sensitive stomachs you can leave it out. To hide the evidence, you could always substitute cayenne pepper so there are no seeds!
  • I love toasted almond slices on my salads, but any nuts will works.
