Rainbow salad will light up your day! You eat with your eyes first, it’s true especially for this salad. It gives you a lot of colorful vegetables in one serving taking care of a wide array of Vitamins and minerals. The dressing is quite extra ordinary. The sweet and the nutty from the peanut butter, the salty from the soy sauce, the spicy from the chili and the tangy from lemon. The result is lip smackingly good! The spicy Thai peanut butter salad dressing is to die for. It’s sweet, tangy, spicy and so so flavorful. In this recipe we learn how to make spicy Thai peanut salad dressing recipe?
Tofu provides the protein in this salad, making it a complete and balanced meal. I love silken Tofu but it’s taste may not go well with everyone. Here, I have grilled the Tofu after marinating it in the Thai peanut sauce. The marinade makes it drool-worthy. It’s almost like eating a satay!
