Spicy Thai Salad

Spicy Thai Salad

I’ve had Thai food on my mind lately since the weather is cooling off and Thai food adds some extra heat when it’s cold outside. I find the deep flavors in Thai dishes to be so comforting and grounding.

I spent time several years ago playing around with Thai-inspired recipes in anticipation of my honeymoon adventures in Thailand. I wanted to create some healthy crave-worthy recipes full of those refreshing, sweet, and zesty flavors.

This delicious Spicy Thai Salad was one of the recipes I made over and it’s still one of my go-tos almost 10 years later!

From its crunchy cabbage base to its lime juice-based dressing, this salad has all of the sweet and tangy Thai flavors that we all love. It’s super easy to throw together and will be a crowd-pleaser whether you serve it for a weeknight meal or a larger gathering.

Give it a try and let us know what you think in the comments below! We love hearing from you.

With love and lime juice,
