I even have a salad of the week for you… The dressing of the week is a yummy and light thai dressing, perfect for those fresh spring greens at Farmer’s Markets right now.

Peanut Thai Salad Dressing
Salad [12]  Sauces & Condiments [13]  Vegetables [14]  Thai [15]  
Ingredients
7 tbsp. unsweetened natural peanut butter
1/2 cup to 1 cup hot water (depending on desired consistency)
4 tbsp. cider vinegar
1 1/2 tbsp. raw honey
1 1/2 tsp salt
4 medium cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp srirachi sauce
2 tsp lime juice
2 tsp sesame oil (optional)
Directions
Whisk all ingredients together and taste. Adjust seasonings as you like.

Use as a salad dressing. Good with organic greens, grape tomatoes, avocado and carrot spirals… Jicama would be a great addition too!
