Thai Salad with Curry Coconut Dressing

Thai Salad with Curry Coconut Dressing

This salad is nothing short of fabulous. You can sign me up if a sauce/dressing has peanut butter or coconut milk, or curry in it--this baby has all 3! It's so exciting, I know. Feel free to customize the greens or add additional vegetables depending on what you have on hand. As you can see, we are overrun with 3 varieties of kale from our garden, so I had to use it here.

Thai Salad with Curry Coconut Dressing
-adapted from

Put the following into a blender or food processor and whirl it up until it's smooth: 

  • 1 cup full-fat canned coconut milk
  • 3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon yellow curry powder
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt


I'm not going to give you proportions here because it doesn't matter. Put your desired amount of each ingredient onto the plate.

  • Spring green mix (I used half read leaf lettuce, half dino kale. Cabbage would be an awesome addition)
  • fresh mango, peeled and chopped
  • red pepper, sliced
  • avocado, sliced
  • green onions, chopped
  • cashews (peanuts would be great here as well)
  • Fresh cilantro 

Build your salads, drizzle with dressing, and dig in. This is the stuff dreams are made of, people. For reals.
