Thai-Style Chopped Peanut Salad

This salad is so tasty! (I served it to a group of friends the other night and one of them referred to it as “addictive” :)

It resembles a salad roll with peanut dipping sauce that you would get in a Thai restaurant. I recommend adding your own cooked protein to make it a full meal.

Peanut Dressing Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice

  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce or tamari*

  • 1 tablespoon honey (or maple syrup or agave nectar)

  • 1-2 teaspoon sriracha

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1 clove garlic roughly chopped

  • 1–2 tablespoons water if needed to reach desired consistency

Blend in a blender until everything is combined well and creamy. Add a little water to thin a bit so you can pour it.

Makes about 3/4 cup

Salad Ingredients:

Below are rough measurements for 4 entree size salads. Feel free to riff on each ingredient to your own taste, adding more or less as desired.

  • 8 c. Thinly sliced red and/or green cabbage

  • 2-4 carrots, grated

  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced

  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced

  • 1/2-1 pkg frozen Edamame, cooked and cooled

  • Herbs: chopped cilantro, Thai basil, mint-be generous here, the herbs make it!!

  • 1/2-ish cup roasted peanuts, chopped, to garnish

  • Lime wedges, to garnish

  • Your choice of cooked protein, if you want to make it a full meal (reccommended!) Ideas are: grilled chicken breast or thighs, air fried tofu, sliced flank steak, or sautéed shrimp.

Combine everything through the chopped herbs in a large bowl and mix well. Divide onto plates and top with chopped peanuts, additional herbs, cooked protein and lime wedges. Drizzle on the amazing peanut dressing and enjoy!
