Thai Peanut Cabbage Salad

Thai Peanut Cabbage SaladI have been so into cabbage over the past few months. I don’t know what started this cabbage kick, but I’ve been using it in our meals pretty often lately. Normally I saute it and make it into a warm cabbage stir-fry type of situation.

For this recipe I decided to leave it raw and just slice it up nice and thin. Cabbage can be kind of tough some time, so I suggest you chop it THIN.

My favorite way to eat cabbage salads or stir-frys is to pair it with Asian flavors. Anything with GF soy sauce always does the trick. The Thai peanut sauce on this salad is SUH GOOD. And so simple.

There are only a few ingredients, and you can easily whip it up in your blender in about 2.5 seconds. It is the perfect mix of sweet, salty, and sour from the peanut butter, soy sauce, and lime juice.
