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.

Forbidden Rice Buddha Bowl
In honor of Earth Day this month I only see it fitting to eat more plants. What better way than with a nourishing buddha bowl? I strive for an array of colors in every meal. I'm talking all colors, even black! If you have yet to try forbidden black rice, I suggest giving it a go because it has so many benefits. It contains vitamin E and anthocyanin, an antioxidant missing from other strands of whole grain rice. It also contains protein, fiber, and iron making it a staple for a veggie based dish. My favorite brand to use it Lotus Foods because they're 100% organic, vegan, and a certified B-Corporation. They want to "change how rice i ...

Probiotic Coconut Yogurt
I love coconut yogurt, but I lately it's been breaking the bank for me. This recipe is super tasty and will save you tons if you're a fanatic like myself. It's truly as easy as mixing two ingredients! This particular version is super creamy and rich, which makes it a great topping for smoothies, breakfast bowls, and whatever else you can think up (check out this pumpkin loaf I topped it on)If you're looking for a lighter option, try mixing up the coconut milk you're working with. For instance, a reduced fat or regular can of coconut will yield thinner results. I'd love to hear some feedback on this one if you decide to do so! You can also use ...

A Clean Picnic: For Your Body + The Planet
The grass is green, the sun is shining, and eating outside in May is quite possibly my favorite thing to do. Whether it's going to a local park, packing up for a road trip, or simply lounging in your backyard, it's so easy to go zero waste. Who want's to be lugging all of that trash around afterward anyway? Picnics are always my top lunch choice on nice days, not only because I can be outside, but because I can customize a healthy meal. And don't worry, I'm not talking about a boring salad here. I'm talking about gluten and dairy-free turkey pesto sandwiches to start. The Picnic: Turkey + Pesto Sandwiches Almond Ricotta, Lemon ...
