Crunchy Thai Salad With Creamy Cashew Dressing




3 cups baby kale (or spring mix)

1 red bell pepper, chopped

2 cups of shredded purple cabbage and shredded carrots (I got the bagged blend at Trader Joe’s)

1 cup diced mango

1/3 an english cucumber, sliced & halved

1/4 cup cilantro, chopped

2 tbsp green onion, sliced

1/3 cup roasted cashews, roughly chopped

Dressing (makes about 3/4 cup)

1/3 cup creamy cashew butter

2 tbsp coconut aminos or soy sauce

1 tbsp rice wine vinegar

1 tbsp maple syrup or honey

pinch of ground ginger

juice of 1 lime

1 tbsp water

salt to taste (IF your cashew butter is unsalted)

pinch of red pepper flakes (optional)


Combine all of the salad ingredients in a big bowl and toss together so everything is evenly distributed.

In a food processor or blender combine all the dressing ingredient and blend/process until smooth and creamy. Pour dressing over the salad and mix well.
