Asian Broccoli Salad

asian broccoli saladSince I treated myself to some cheesecake yesterday, that means today I’ll eat even better to adjust for that treat. I made this salad to go along with some fish I made for dinner. It’s simple but full of great Asian inspired taste – and I haven’t had broccoli in awhile!
