Asian Rice Salad with Snow Peas

Have some leftover rice? Try using it in this super simple Asian-inspired salad. It combines with healthful crisp raw veggies and a lovely gingery sesame dressing to make one of our favorite light meals, and it couldn’t be easier to throw together.

2 tablespoons chopped cashews
1 stem broccoli, peeled and sliced


1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 1/2 teaspoons tamari or other good-quality soy sauce
1 teaspoon pickled ginger, minced
