Thai Crunch Salad

Eat Uncategorized

Everyone who’s traveling this Summer raise your hand! Sitting with your hand down and a slight pout on your face? I’m with you. This is probably the first Summer in years I don’t have any big plans. So to balance it out, I’m bringing some foreign cuisine into my kitchen.

During these hot days, I’ve been craving fresh, raw veggies. This Thai-fusion salad has been on repeat in my house! It’s packed with greens, veggies, and the tastiest peanut dressing. Personally, I like using crunchy peanut butter for an extra texture. It’s super easy to prep to take on the go, whether you’re enjoying it in the office or at the park.

Makes 2 servings

Ingredients:

The Salad

  • About 3 cups Tuscan kale (washed + chopped)
  • 1/2 large carrot (peeled + diced)
  • 1 cup purple cabbage (shredded)
  • 2 green onions (diced)
  • A couple sprigs of cilantro (chopped)
  • 1 red pepper (diced)

The Dressing

  • 2 Tbsp peanut butter – crunchy or smooth
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp Soy Sauce, Tamari or Coconut Aminos
  • 1/2 lime juiced
  • 1/2 tsp sriracha
  • Water to thin

Make:

The Dressing

  1. Add all ingredients to a bowl and whisk together
  2. Slowly thin with water until desired consistency

The Salad

  1. Prep all veggies
  2. Layer all ingredients in two sandwich Stashers
  3. Add the dressing
  4. Shake it up
  5. Eat out of the bag or transfer to a dish
  6. Enjoy!

*Pro Tip* Add the dressing to the bottom of the bag if you’re taking it on the go! This keeps the lettuce from wilting and it’s ready to shake up whenever you’re ready to eat.

Anyone else excited that it's currently citrus season? I know I am! I've recently been learning more about chakras and why it's important to make sure they're unblocked.

You may have a lack of motivation, creativity, and reduced libido if your sacral chakra is blocked. To help open it, it's important to bring in warmth, orange foods, and honor your reproductive organs. This citrus maca chai smoothie was created specifically for it! Did you know that BPA and other plasti ...

This warm weather seems like it is finally here to stay, which means it's time to get outdoors in my opinion! I love creating healthy snacks for hiking trips, so why not share one that keeps the planet healthy too? Here are three twists on the classic trail mix recipe, which were made possible by shopping the bulk section at my local co-op! Just take your stasher bags in, weigh them, and add whatever your heart desires. I love filling up a huge bag of nuts or seeds and then some smaller ones with dried fruit and spices. *Measuring: This is totally up to you!
