Thai Cabbage Salad close up

Healthy. Crunchy. Delicious.

Which is to be expected when there’s crisp cabbage and romaine is tossed with carrots, sugar snap peas, bell pepper and peanuts in a simple Thai dressing? Making this salad fresh and deliciously healthy. Typically I serve roasted broccoli as a side with most things. But I’ve really become to love a good salad or slaw when I make any type of protein and rice dish. Like when I made this Korean bbq beef bowl. And more recently, this lemongrass chicken.

It’s the warm contrasting the cool and crisp for me.
