For a quick and easy weeknight supper, serve your family a tasty salad with Asian flair that's better than take-out. This salad is packed with fresh vegetables that includes bell peppers and sugar snap peas drizzled with a homemade ginger-honey dressing. If you're a fan of sprouts, try mung bean sprouts in place of the bell pepper. The ginger-infused dressing gets sweetness from honey and a hint of spice from crushed red pepper flakes. We used a spoon instead of a vegetable peeler to peel the ginger so as not to remove too much of the ginger. Make a double batch of this recipe to use on other salads or as a marinade for chicken or vegetables.
