This Avocado Thai Peanut Salad checks all the delicious boxes for me. It’s everything I am looking for in a salad. It’s full of flavor, healthy ingredients, light enough for summer, but hearty enough for winter. You need to try it.
It has chickpeas that you roast in the oven with this delicious rub, I could seriously just munch on the chickpeas. But they do pair perfectly with the flavors of the salad.
You make your own peanut dressing, which is super easy and super delicious.
I had never had napa cabbage before experimenting with this recipe. It’s good! I like the flavor of cabbage which is pretty much what it tastes like, but it has a nice tender salad like texture instead of the more course cabbage texture. This salad has some regular cabbage as well. So it leaves you with different fun textures.
What’s all in this Avocado Thai Peanut Salad?
- Chickpeas with seasoning- salt, pepper, smoked paprika
- Napa Cabage
- Cole Slaw Package
- Peanut Butter
- Soy Sauce
- Lime Juice
- Rice Vinegar
How do you make it?
Take a can of chickpeas, rinse and drain it. Then put them on a sprayed baking sheet. Rub the oil on them and then the seasoning. You’ll cook this in a 400 degree oven for 15-20 minutes. Then remove and set aside.
While the chickpeas are cooking make your dressing. This is crazy easy. You’ll just throw your dressing ingredients together and mix. Bam
Cut up your Nappa cabbage into bite-sized pieces. Place it in a medium bowl and then add your already sliced coleslaw. When I say coleslaw I mean just the vegetables no actual dressing. You could get regular cabbage and just slice it up, but it’s nice to just have it already done for you. Throw it in the bowl and mix it with the Nappa Cabbage. Set that aside.
Now mix all that goodness together and top with sliced avocados and peanuts. And get ready for delicious dinner!
