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.

2 Ingredient Jam
This is by far one of my most used recipes. I hate buying store-bought jams and jellies because most of them have additives and preservatives that can upset the gut in the long run. This route is super cost effective too! (Always a pro) I put in on most breakfast bowls, toasts, dark chocolate, the possibilities are endless. Making it at the beginning of the week is usually the easiest for convenience, but honestly, you can whip it up in less than 5 minutes if you have a craving! This recipe works perfectly for all frozen or fresh fruits too. If you're using peaches, mangos, or apples, I recommend giving them a couple pulses in a blender ...

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pie Fat Balls
No food processor necessary. I repeat, NO FOOD PROCESSOR NECESSARY! Game changer happening over here. Have you ever seen a recipe you've really wanted to recreate but didn't have the necessary equipment? This happens to me all of the time, especially with the ever-popular energy/ fat balls. The only equipment needed for these babies includes a mixing bowl, a large fork, and your hands (bonus if you already have small parchment cups for chilling them). I don't know about you guys, but it feels like I've been overloaded with pumpkin recipes here and there. So I promise this is one of the last! (And one of the best in my personal opinion, w ...

This granola is a gut's dream, packed with gluten-free rolled oats and refined sugar-free sweetness. I feel like I've been searching for a recipe that holds up to the chunky granola found in grocery stores (usually packed with tons of sugar and fillers), and I think I've finally done it. Not trying to brag, but okay I'm gonna brag about this one, alright? The mix of coconut oil, local honey, and pink Himalayan salt create a buttery flavor without actual butter.
