THAI CRUNCHY SALAD
It's summer time and my favorite season to enjoy fresh and delicious salads. Plenty of seasonal produce to make your favorite salad bowl.
One of my favorite salads this summer is this Thai crunchy salad. So fresh, tangy and crunchy on every bite.... and
Did I mention it is so easy to make?
A simple mix of green and red cabbage, shredded carrots, cilantro, green onions, crushed peanut and a drizzle of the most savory delicious peanut dressing.
I think the star of this salad is the peanut dressing. It is creamy and tangy, with just the perfect sweetness from the honey to bring a total burst of flavors in your mouth.
We enjoyed this delicious Thai crunchy salad with honey garlic grilled shrimp skewers ... a perfect COMBO!
