Recipe type: Salad
Cuisine: Thai
Serves: 4
  • Salad
  • 1 package of kelp noodles (12 ounces)
  • 1 cup thinly sliced cucumbers
  • 1 cup thinly sliced red cabbage
  • 1 cup thinly sliced carrots
  • 1 cup thinly sliced red bell pepper (optional)
  • ¼ cup thinly sliced red onions
  • ¼ cup chopped scallions
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro
  • Dressing
  • ¼ cup sunbutter
  • ⅛ cup coconut aminos
  • ⅛ cup lime juice
  • ¼ tsp. ground ginger (dried)
  • 2-3 tbsp. coconut milk
  • ⅛ tsp. cayenne pepper (optional)
  1. In a small bowl, mix together all of the dressing ingredients until smooth and creamy. Set aside.
  2. Rinse your kelp noodles and let them drain in a colander to get rid of excess water.
  3. Prepare all of your veggies and place in a large bowl.
  4. Once the noodles have finished draining, place them in the bowl with the sliced veggies.
  5. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss until everything is coated with the dressing.
  6. Let the salad chill in the fridge for an hour or two before serving to give the flavors time to develop. This salad also holds up well, so you could make it in advance if needed.
  7. Serve as a side, or make it a complete meal and serve with a protein of your choice. Garnish with extra chopped cilantro and a fresh squeeze of lime juice if desired.
