Thai-Inspired Salad With Peanut Butter Sauce

salad with peanut butterSince about 5 years ago I have decided that February is a perfect month to challenge myself: compared to the other months, February is much shorter so this fact alone gives me quite a boost of motivation :) Since this realization I’ve had a month of veganism (which turned into my lifestyle), a month of intensive sports, a month without added sugar and this year I decided to try a “raw month”. Constantly looking for “raw inspiration” online I created my own salad which is

- Sexy

- Super easy to make

- Fulfilling

- Very delicious

- Sweet, savory and rich

So why not give it a try? You’ll need just a few simple (and affordable) ingredients and will nourish your body with delicious, vitamin-rich items. Let’s get started!

You will need

- Fresh spinach

- Red bell pepper

- Ripe avocado

- Sweet, ripe mango

- 1 small carrot

- A spoonful of pistachios

For the sauce

- 1 spoon of peanut butter

- 1/2 can of semi-fat coconut milk

- 2 spoons of soy sauce

- 1 garlic clove

Preparation

On a nice, big plate put the spinach “coat”. Grate the carrot, serve it on top of the spinach layer.┬áChop the bell pepper and mango in long stripes, add avocado cut in full-length and put it on the spinach “coating”. Mix all sauce ingredients using your blender and drizzle on top. Crush pistachio nuts and generously add on the very top. Garnish with lime.

* If you want to “tune up” your meal, I advice you to fry some firm tofu and pour the peanut sauce straight in the pan, it’ll become a bit thicker. For the richer version of the meal you can also use glass noodles underneath – instead of a raw salad it’ll rather make a full salad-meal. Super delicious with the hot tofu on top!
