This is a cool and tangy salad that can compliment any Asian themed meal. Especially with things like Tempura or other dishes that don't already include a substantial amount of vegetables. Also very quick and simple to make!

Wow... did summer fly by or what? In my mind, Memorial Day was last weekend. Summer's unofficially coming to an end, but I'm not going to let the weekend go...
