The famous Nish Nosh salad has been around for years and has become a staple in many homes (and even restaurants). I thought it was time to recreate it! My goal was to keep the same delicious taste but with more wholesome ingredients.   I kept this salad very similar to the original recipe that people have grown to love, but feel free to experiment and get creative. The dressing is great with just about anything—it can even be used as a chicken marinade! Plantain chips or plantain croutons make the perfect Nish Nosh cracker alternative and can be used in any salad that you want to give a healthier crunch to.



  • 3 Romaine hearts, chopped

  • 1/2 bag red cabbage

  • 1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes, halved




Combine dressing ingredients in a jar and shake to combine.


Combine lettuce, cabbage, tomatoes, and onions in a large bowl. Toss with dressing, then top with plantain chips.


Plantains are savory bananas that make great chips. Heaven and Earth’s plantain chips can be found in local supermarkets. The chips or croutons can also be found at Trader Joe’s.  

Coconut aminos is a savory seasoning sauce made from the fermented sap of coconut palm. It is soy free, gluten free, non-GMO, and MSG free and has some really great health benefits. The sugary liquid is similar in color and consistency to light soy sauce, making it an easy substitute in recipes. It can be found locally at NPGS, Gourmet Glatt, or Trader Joe’s.
