Asian-inspired "my body needs fruits and veggies!" salad

After a weekend of eating a lot of starchy foods, my body was craving fruits and veggies. This took care of both cravings.

2 tbs. rice vinegar
1 tbs. soy sauce
Juice of 2 limes
Garlic powder
Red chili sauce
1/2 avocado
1/4 red onion
1/2 mango
1/2 apple (red delicious or any other crunchy variety)
1 carrot
1 cucumber, seeded
1/2 cup shelled edamame
1/4 cup cilantro (chopped or whole leaves)
2 cups lettuce, chopped

In small bowl, mix rice vinegar, soy sauce, and lime juice. Add garlic and chili sauce to taste. Set aside.

Slice avocado, red onion, mango, apple, carrot, and cucumber into thin strips (slightly larger than matchstick pieces). Mix with edamame, cilantro, lettuce and dressing. Serve immediately, or let sit sans lettuce until serving; mix with lettuce immediately prior to serving.
