SPICY PEANUT KALE SALAD

This dish is inspired by my favorite kale salad of all time. No one does it better than the restaurant that serves this crazy amazing salad, but I gave it my best shot. It has just the right amount of spice to breathe a little fire into the creaminess of the peanut butter. Be prepared to eat this one with a spoon in massive amounts.


INGREDIENTS


Salad:

1 bunch kale, spine removed

1/2 head green cabbage

1 cup mint leaves, stems removed

1 bunch cilantro, stems removed

4 green onions, white and green parts

1/4 cup chopped unsalted roasted peanuts


Dressing:

1/3 cup toasted sesame oil

2 tbs coconut aminos

2 tbs powdered peanut butter

1 tsp yellow mustard

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp red pepper flakes

1/8 tsp salt

optional: a sprinkle of cayenne for extra heat


DIRECTIONS


Finely chop kale, cabbage, mint, cilantro and onions. Whisk together dressing ingredients until combined. In a large bowl toss salad ingredients in dressing. Allow to chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before serving. Top with peanuts and enjoy!
