Crunchy Thai Salad

This is an easy, delicious salad full of crunchy vegetables and a sweet Thai dressing. You can easily swap out the veggies for what you have on hand. I will top with Costco rotisserie chicken and some sesame seeds. I tend to like less dressing, so if you like more heavy dressing, I recommend you make double and add to taste – can keep extra in fridge for a marinade or leftovers!


  1. ¼ cup creamy peanut butter
  2. 2 tablespoons unseasoned rice vinegar
  3. 2 tablespoons lime juice
  4. 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  5. 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  6. 2 tablespoons honey
  7. 2½ tablespoons sugar
  8. 2 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  9. 2 teaspoon ginger paste (or fresh ginger chopped)
  10. 1 teaspoon salt
  11. 3 tablespoons chopped cilantro leaves 


  1. 3 cups chopped Napa cabbage or shredded coleslaw mix 
  2. 2 cups loosely packed chopped butter or romaine lettuce
  3. 1/2 cup prepared shredded carrots (if not in slaw mix)
  4. 1/2 cup chopped celery
  5. 1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced into bite-sized pieces
  6. 1 small English cucumber, chopped
  7. 1 cup cooked and shelled edamame (I buy frozen)
  8. 2 medium scallions, thinly sliced
  9. ½ cup loosely packed chopped fresh cilantro

Protein of choice to top – rotisserie chicken, grilled shrimp or salmon are my favs. 

Garnish ideas – sesame seeds, peanuts, cilantro, wonton strips
