Speaking of veggies - here is a recipe for your summer get togethers. There are even more of my favorites linked below. This salad features veggies and peanuts brought to you by the National Peanut Board.
Asha’s Salad with Thai Peanut Dressing
For the salad: 1 cup lightly cooked asparagus trimmed, 1 cup lightly cooked green beans trimmed, 1 cup raw carrots julienned, 1 cup raw red cabbage thinly sliced, 1/2 cup strawberries quartered, 1/2 cup cherry or grape tomatoes quartered, 1/2 cup roasted peanuts.
For the dressing: 1/4 cup lime juice, 1/4 cup olive oil, 4 tablespoons of honey, 2 cloves of garlic, 1 cup chopped cilantro, 1 tablespoon peanut butter. Add all the ingredients to a blender and blend it to a creamy consistency.
Mix all the salad ingredients in a bowl. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss. Top the salad with the roasted peanuts.
