This sweet, mildly spicy Thai Green Curry Salad with Cashews makes a filling meal. The dressing alone is bowl licking good!
Green curry is my curry of choice whenever I go to a restaurant. I love the mild sweet spicy flavor. Normally I prefer really spicy meals but this is the one time that I prefer a mild spice. This Thai Green Curry Salad with Cashews has that same mild sweet spicy flavor but in salad form.
If I ate salads with this Thai Green Curry Salad Dressing and my Peanut Dressing, I could eat salads one to two times a day, and not get sick of them. I could eat both dressings like soup or drink them down like a smoothie. Okay that’s a little weird, but they are both bowl licking good!
Even though I’ve made Thai salads before, this is the first time that I have used these ingredients. For the savory components, I’ve included cucumber, green onion, and basil. To add a sweet touch I added mango, cashews, and carrots. Cilantro adds a touch of brightness, as does the lime juice in the dressing.
If you love curry and are looking for a new salad to add to your repertoire, this is the one for you!
