Spinach Salad

Thai Peanut Spinach Salad

Description Edit

It’s strange. I don’t like peanut butter, but a good spicy Thai peanut sauce is one of my favorite things. I love it drizzled on just about everything. I had trouble making good peanut sauce until it finally dawned on me: to have really good Thai peanut sauce, you must start with really good peanut butter. It was one of those “Duh” moments for me! So, forget the popular brands and go for the good stuff for this recipe. It is a little more expensive, but you only use a little and it is well worth it. I like the all-natural kind that says “dark roasted” on the label, and only has two ingredients: salt and peanuts. I made this recipe with the idea of serving it cold on salads, so it is more like a vinaigrette than a sauce you would serve warm with chicken.

Ingredients Edit

Spicy Thai Peanut Dressing Edit

Garnish Edit

Directions Edit

  1. Very lightly and briefly sauté some rough chopped spinach for less than a minute until it just barely starts to wilt. You could also blanch it SUPER quickly in boiling water.
  2. Drained, and drizzle with the Thai peanut sauce recipe, and sprinkle with some diced roasted peanuts.
