Dumpling Salad

Howdy! Ever want oriental food, but do not want to spend time in a restaurant?

Well today, we are going to make yummy Dumpling Salad.

All you need is:

  •  1lb of Dumplings (from your local grocery store, Costco ones are good too)
  •  1 head of romaine lettuce
  • 1/2 ripe cucumber
  • 1/2 cup of red peppers
  • 1/2 cup of tomatoes
  • 1/2 head of broccoli
  • 1/2 cup of shredded carrots
First, warm up the dumplings in either a conventional oven, microwave, or on the stove. They should already be cooked from the store, but make sure to read the directions on the packaging.

Next, chop up the lettuce and vegetables into a "chop salad" form, which means cut the vegetables and leaves into 1 inch wide squares or strips.

Finally, mix all the ingredients in a bowl and enjoy!

I prefer raw vegetables because that way, they retain all of the nutrients inside. If you boil or steam them, along with cooking the, the vitamins will also evaporate.

Please refer to the photo for an idea of this yummy meal!
