Good Earth Thai Salad, Spicy Peanut Dressing

This recipe is one my favorite salads from Good Earth Cafe.  I wish I invented it, but I didn’t 🙂

  • shredded red and green cabbage
  • sliced strawberries
  • sliced almonds
  • red and green bell pepper, julienned
  • sliced red onion
  • fried wonton strips/chow mein noodles
  • fresh mint & basil, chopped
  • spicy asian peanut dressing*
  • pesto grilled chicken (optional)
  • garlic bread (optional)

Toss it up and devour 🙂

* you can make your own below, these days I get mine from Trader Joe’s

Nassy Spicy Peanut Dressing:

  • 1/4 cup of peanuts or 1 – 2 tbsp peanut butter (start with a little bit and add more to taste)
  • 1 bunch cilantro with stems  (why waste?)
  • 1/2 of a jalapeno pepper
  • a splash of rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp of soy sauce
  • 1/2 – 1 tsp of sesame oil
  • a small wedge of iceberg lettuce (optional, it adds liquid and makes the pepper taste more mild)

Blend in a food processor until smooth.  I add the smallest amount of every ingredient (especially when using soy sauce and sesame oil), then add more to taste after it’s been blended.  My advice is to do the same and remember that patience is a virtue 🙂
