This Thai Crunch Salad is full of color and bold fresh flavors. Fresh herbs, shredded cabbage, and crunchy bell peppers all come together with a creamy peanut dressing. This easy recipe is the perfect summer salad and goes great with your favorite protein, like chicken, fish or even tofu for a meat-free option!



For the Salad

  • 2 cups shredded red cabbage
  • 2 cups shredded green cabbage
  • 1 cup sliced red bell pepper
  • 1 cup sliced yellow bell pepper
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/3 cup sliced green onions
  • 1/3 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/3 cup unsalted roasted peanuts

For the Dressing

  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 2 tablespoon coconut aminos
  • 2 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon sriracha
  • 2 tablespoon honey or maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoon chopped cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. Combine all of the dressing ingredients in a high-powered blender and blend until smooth and creamy.
  2. Add all of the salad ingredients to a large bowl. Drizzle your desired amount of the peanut dressing over the salad. You’ll probably have a bit leftover and that’s ok. Toss the salad until well combined and coated in the dressing. Enjoy!
