Recipe | "Asian Salad with Thai Peanut dressing" by Sue Ready


Cook's Notes: The ingredients listed for the salad can be increased or decreased depending on how many servings you need. The dressing is enough for 3 salads. It's a thick dressing so use it immediately rather than refrigerating it. The Thai Dressing is just amazing with a wonderful blend of sweetness, saltiness, sourness and heat with red pepper flakes. Add in cooked chicken or pork and the salad becomes a main meal.
