Pad Thai Salad
A treat for the eyes and the palate! This salad has the approval of my 8 year old son.
Serves 6 as a side salad, 4 as a main.
2 zucchinis, peeled and sliced into strips with a vegetable peeler
2 cups beansprouts
3/4 cup chopped nuts (almonds, peanuts or cashews)
1 red or yellow sweet bell pepper, sliced into strips
4 green onions, diced
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
For the dressing:
1/4 cup natural peanut butter
1/4 cup water
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp lime juice
1 garlic clove
2 tbsp rice vinegar
Place salad ingredients in a large bowl. In a blender or food processor, whiz dressing ingredients until smooth. Drizzle approx. 5 tablespoonfuls of dressing onto salad and toss to combine.
