5: Recipe | Thai Salad with Coconut-Curry Dressing

NaBloPoMo-Sundays will be for sharing some of my most recent favorite recipes. J and I have been trying a lot of new recipes lately. Some were kind of meh, others were instant successes and will be added to our recipe folder.

This salad was one of our instant favorites. I was a bit hesitant because I am usually not a big fan of peanut butter. I usually mean peanut butter-jelly sandwich or peanut butter cups when I say this. As an ingredient in Asian cuisine, peanut butter is actually surprisingly good. I am so, so glad I gave this salad a try. This salad is vegetable based (there is no lettuce, just cabbage in this recipe) and it’s really fresh and crunchy. And you guys, the dressing? It’s to die for.

Promise me, you give this a try. You won’t regret it. Extra points for it being a really quick and easy weeknight dinner option.

  1. This does sound good! I love it Asian and just had some for dinner. But I would probably swap some cabbage as I can not imagine having a salad only containing that.

    1. The cabbage ‘feels’ like lettuce, just crunchier. I really enjoyed it.

  2. It looks very yummy! I cannot picture myself making my own dressing though. Chopping up salad is enough work! I tend to take the easy routes in the kitchen.

    1. Oh girl, you’re missing out… making your own dressing is so easy and YOU control the ingredients ;)

  3. This looks really good! I will have to make it sometime soon! I’m kind of the opposite of you are I LOVE peanut butter, especially pb cups. But I often don’t like peanut butter sauces unless the peanut taste is really subtle. I bet I would like this dressing though as there are enough other ingredients so the pb doesn’t overpower everything else!

    1. The PB is very subtle… I actually really like it in this dressing.

  4. Sounds great! I’m always trying to mix up my salad game beyond the basic lettuce + leftover-in-the-fridge vegetables.
