This Thai Salad with Peanut Dressing has all the components of Thai spring rolls and is seriously addictive!
If you have been following me for awhile, you know that I love peanut sauce. I have quite a few recipes with peanut sauce already, and I am sure that I will find new ways to make more in the future.
This Thai Salad with Peanut Dressing is pretty light, with only the dressing and peanuts to add any heavy component. If you want some extra protein, you could add some Ginger Garlic Tofu. The only reason I didn't is because I wanted to keep things lighter today.
The dressing, which you will have more than the salad calls for is delicious on Thai Pizza as well (just don't add the water to thin it out). This salad is sweet and savory at the same time. It makes a wonderful light lunch or side salad.

Thai Salad with Peanut Dressing
Peanut dressing - you will have extra!
- ½ cup peanut butter
- ½ cup light coconut milk
- 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
- 1 tablespoon coconut sugar
- 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon low sodium gluten free tamari
- 1 clove garlic minced
- 2 teaspoons minced ginger
- 1 teaspoon sriracha
- water to thin if not using all of it on the same day
- 3 cups spinach / spring mix blend
- 2 tablespoons julienned red pepper
- 2 tablespoons julienned carrot
- 2 tablespoons peeled and julienned cucumber
- 2 tablespoons cilantro
- 2 tablespoons crushed peanuts
- Mix all ingredients in high speed blender or Nutribullet until garlic and ginger are well blended. If you don't have either, then make sure garlic and ginger are very finely minced before blending. After refrigerating, you will notice the dressing thickens. You will need to add water for a thinner consistency.
- Layer lettuce mix, chopped vegetables, and peanuts in two bowls (or one if you're hungry!), then top with dressing.

Too much peanut butter. I would use half next time. The recipe was more than enough to serve 4.
