Crunchy Thai Salad + Spicy Peanut Dressing | Nordstrom Clearance Sale

Sep 2, 2015

I think by now you all know I love a good salad.  Salads are my favorite thing to make and eat.

This chopped Thai Salad is so darn good.  The crunchy veggies paired with the slightly spicy peanut butter dressing is such an amazing combo.  I came across the recipe on Pinterest and made w few changes.  Since the veggies are crunchy this salad will save in the fridge for a few days without getting soggy.  I do recommend not using all the dressing at once if you plan to save it. I ate this for lunch but if you wanted a heartier meal this would e great with some chicken or shrimp.  It is a great end of Summer salad and way to use up veggies in your fridge!

    I can't wait to try the salad! How do you compare lulu capris to the zella ones? I have read some reviews that they ride up around the calves
