Tangled Thai Salad

If you don’t have a julienne peeler or turning slicer (spiralizer), just cut the vegetables into sticks as thin and long as you can. Serves 1 as a meal

1 cup chopped napa cabbage
1/3 cup sliced jicama (cut into small sticks)
2/3 cup shredded or spiralized carrot
2/3 cup shredded or spiralized yellow beet
4 tbsp Peanut Lime Dressing (recipe follows)
3 slices cucumber, halved
2 tsp chopped raw peanuts
2 tbsp Fresh Salad Topper (recipe follows)
1 lime wedge
2 to 3 tbsp chopped cilantro

1. Put napa cabbage in a large, shallow serving bowl (or plate). Top with jicama.
2. Pile the carrot and beet on top and drizzle with dressing.
3. Garnish with the cucumber, peanuts, Salad Topper, lime, and cilantro.

Peanut Lime Dressing

This dressing will keep for up to a week in the fridge. It is delicious on the Tangled Thai Salad, but would be equally good on any salad or even poured on top of cold noodles.

Makes 1 cup

3 cloves garlic, minced (about 1 tbsp)
2 tbsp tightly packed cilantro
2 tbsp natural peanut butter
2 tbsp + 2 tsp lime juice
1 tbsp + 1/2 tsp tamari
1 tbsp rice vinegar
1 tbsp peeled and chopped ginger
2 tsp coconut milk
1 1/2 tsp organic sugar
3/4 tsp sesame oil
3/4 tsp sambal oelek
1/2 cup sunflower oil

1. In a blender, puree all ingredients except the sunflower oil.
2. With blender running, add sunflower oil in a thin stream until dressing is emulsified.

Fresh Salad Topper

This crunchy mix adds great flavour and texture to any salad. If you want to use it as a topper for fruit salad, yogurt, or oatmeal, leave the salt out and replace it with sugar. If you can’t find puffed quinoa at your local health food store, you can substitute puffed millet. This mixture keeps for months in an airtight container.

Makes about 1 3/4 cups

1 cup puffed quinoa
1/4 cup goji berries
1/4 cup currants
2 tbsp sliced almonds
2 tbsp chopped hazelnuts
2 tbsp chopped pistachios
1/4 tsp sea salt

1. Put all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
