Description

Creamy peanut sauce combines with literally any crunchy vegetables you like and some lo mein noodles because we deserve them. This is the perfect meal prep salad!

Ingredients

  • FOR THE SALAD:
  • 3 cups Shredded Cabbage (about 1/4 Head Cabbage)
  • ½ whole Bell Pepper, Chopped
  • ¼ cups Green Onions, Sliced
  • 1 cup Chopped Cucumber
  • ⅓ cups Torn Cilantro Leaves
  • ½ cups Chopped Cashews
  • 1-½ cup Chow Mein Noodles
  • FOR THE DRESSING:
  • ½ cups Peanut Butter
  • ⅓ cups Sesame Oil
  • ¼ cups Soy Sauce
  • ¼ cups Rice Vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons Chili Paste (I Use The Rooster Brand Chili Garlic Sauce)
  • 2 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 1 clove Garlic, Peeled
  • 1 piece (about 1/4 Inch Long) Fresh Ginger

Preparation

For the dressing, add all ingredients to a blender. Blend on high to combine. Taste and adjust the seasonings to your preference.

Once veggies are prepped, add a bit of everything you’d like to a bowl with a spoonful or two of the dressing. Toss to combine, and add more dressing if you’d like. Probably have seconds.

For meal prep, I keep the veggies and noodles/nuts in separate containers, then combine right before eating. To take for lunch at an office situation, I add all the veggies I’d like to one container, then the morning of, add crunchy stuff and a scoop of dressing to the container, then toss together right before eating.

Notes:
• There are measurements here for veggies, but honestly use as much of anything as you’d like!
• Other veggies I love with this dressing include halved cherry tomatoes, torn kale, shredded carrots, and cubed avocado.
• This dressing recipe will yield extra. You could chop up about three times the quantity of veggies and have plenty of dressing, or check out my blog post for other ideas on how to use the peanut sauce.
• If you aren’t feeling chow mein noodles, substitute other cooked pasta or zoodles.

Recipe for peanut dressing is adapted from Pinch of Yum.
