asian salad with peanut dressing





















About time for a break from desserts! When I was in Atlanta a few weeks ago I went to Bacon Fest and ate bacon until I felt sick. That night, all I wanted for dinner was a light, fresh salad. So this is my take on the salad I had with red, green and napa cabbage, basil, cilantro, green and red onion with a spicy peanut  dressing. This salad came with hanger steak on it but I pushed that to the side after all the bacon I had eaten that day.

Red, Green & Napa Cabbage Salad with Peanut Dressing


for the salad:
1/2 small head of napa cabbage
1 small head of red cabbage
1 small head of green cabbage
1 red onion, diced
3 green onions, diced
bunch of cilantro
bunch of basil

spicy peanut dressing:
1/2 c. peanut butter
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp lime juice
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
1/8 c. to 1/4 c. water

For the dressing, combine all of the ingredients in a small saucepan and stir on low heat until the peanut butter melts. Wait for the dressing to cool and pour over salad immediately before serving.
