Crunchy Thai Salad Recipe


  • 3-4 cups red cabbage, finely shredded
  • 2-3 cups gem lettuce, finely shredded
  • 1 yellow or red pepper, finely sliced
  • 1 large carrot, finely julienned or shredded
  • a handful fresh mint, finely sliced
  • a handful fresh coriander, finely sliced
  • 1/2 cup roasted salted peanuts

For the dressing:

  • 1/3 cup (80 ml) smooth plain peanut butter
  • 30-45 ml (2-3 tablespoons) fresh lime or lemon juice
  • 30 ml (2 tablespoons) honey
  • 15 ml (1 tablespoon) soy sauce
  • 30 ml (2 tablespoons) water at room temperature
  • 1 knob of fresh ginger, finely grated (about 2-3 teaspoons)
  • 1 small garlic clove, finely grated
  • salt & pepper to taste


  1. Toss all the ingredients together (cabbage, lettuce, red pepper, carrot, mint, coriander, peanuts) in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Mix all the dressing ingredients together in a small mixing bowl using a hand whisk or stick blender to form a smooth sauce. Pour half the dressing over the salad just before serving and toss to coat.
  3. Serve the remainder of the dressing on the side. This recipe serves 4-6 as a side dish.
