HAPPY Meatless Monday to you all! : ) Hope you all have a fabulous and wonderful Week! As I told you last week...every day is meatless for me...but I really want to share with you some great meatless recipes that are fun and easy!
SO SIMPLE and SOOOOO Tasty! We all love love salad and we tend to add our favorite home-made balsamic vinegar and olive oil dressings, sometimes splurging with blue cheese and other yummy but caloric concoctions...well here is a little treat that I think you are going to love...it will spice up your favorite salad with a new taste and twist! It's a Thai Peanut Dressing that i think you are going to love. Now you can heat it up with some extra spices or you can leave it the way it is and it is mild and delicious. Put together your favorite salad or add some new items like fresh bean sprouts, thinly sliced jicama, thinly sliced cucumbers, some yummy avocado chunks or any interesting vegetable in season at your local market. How about adding some noodles! Then for some crunch, try flash frying some wonton wrappers (about 9 seconds) and break into pieces on top for a new crouton! YUM! how about some marinated tofu for some protein...your imagination will take you to delicious places!
Thai Salad Dressing
1/2 cup of your favorite peanutbutter
1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar
1 cup canola oil
1/2 of organic brown sugar
1/2 tsp freshly chopped chili, crushed
red pepper flakes, 2 tsp Sriracha or
2 tablespoons of very finely slices scallions
(the finer and smaller the better)
2 tablespoons of finely chopped roasted
Now whisk these all together until they are creamy
and blended and pour on your favorite salad! YUM
