Pad Thai Salad with Peanut-Lime Dragon Dressing

Pad Thai Salad with Peanut-Lime Dragon Dressing, page 33

Really, you just can't beat the salads in Appetite for Reduction. I have loved (almost) every single salad in this chapter, so far. I knew I would also love the Pad Thai Salad as soon as I had my first taste of that glorious Peanut-Lime Dragon Dressing. El Hombre commented that he could probably just drink it.

I added a thinly sliced red bell pepper to the salad, and I topped it with some broiled tofu cubes, lightly glazed with a bottled Thai sweet chili sauce. Perfect.

Some very dear friends of ours are moving into a new house in our neighborhood (lucky us!), so I brought them some salad tonight while El Hombre was over there helping them unload the moving truck. There were positive reviews for this recipe, and according to his lovely wife, our friend Bill even remarked that he might consider moving to "Planet Vega" one day. I think that means he has enjoyed my Vegan food, right?

I love the flavors in thai cooking and this sounds like a great way to taste them, without all the cooking and prep.

I have been trying a majority of the salads in this book and, like you, love nearly all of them. This one is crazy good.

I have also made spring rolls with nearly all of the same ingredients, sometimes adding some rice noodles, and used the dressing as the dipping sauce. It's out of this world good.

Thanks for a great blog!

Oooh, spring rolls! What a great idea! That's one of my favorite ways to eat salads on days that I need to pack a lunch and eat on the go. Thanks for the awesome idea!
