Instructions

For the Salad

  1. Put the napa cabbage in a large, shallow serving bowl (or plate). Top with jicama.
  2. Pile the carrot and beet on top and drizzle with dressing.
  3. Garnish with the cucumber, peanuts, Salad Topper, lime, and cilantro.

For the Dressing

  1. In a blender, puree all ingredients except the sunflower oil.
  2. With the blender running, add sunflower oil in a thin stream until dressing is thoroughly blended.

For the Salad Topper

  1. Put all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix well.

Notes:

Peanut Lime Dressing
This dressing will keep for up to a week in the fridge. It is delicious on the Tangled Thai Salad, but would be equally good on any salad or even poured on top of cold noodles.
