Salad, Sizzling Tastebuds

Thai inspired Cabbage-Peanut Salad | GF & Vegan Salads

Wishing all my readers a merry Xmas and Happy holidays ????????

Its Xmas and I haven’t posted a single cookie / Xmas-approved post all this month. Have been travelling and busy with family / friends who are visiting us. Its  been non stop activities at the kids’ school so they are keeping me busy.  

After yesterday’s Low cal Cabbage Pakora, its time to cook with Cabbage – the chosen ingredient for the week. After the heavy food post the Xmas party, this is one salad thats sure to soothe your palate while filling you up with fibre and low carb calorie food. So, while I used what I had on hand, you can really go wild with any other ingredient that you fancy !

So, here’s presenting a Zero cook, Low cal + Low carb Thai Inspired Cabbage-Peanut Salad. Ideal for that brunch or for those living alone in hostels / dorm or even for those lazy evenings when you can munch on a BIG bowl of this eat-as-much-as-you-like salad while surfing the net or binge watching those late night shows.

Prep time : 10 min, standing time : 30 mins (opt.); spice level : medium – high
