Thai Chopped Salad (Vegan, Gluten-Free)

Print

This Thai Chopped Salad is the perfect summer salad: it packs a big flavor punch while still being light and refreshing on a hot summer day. Even better news?? This easy salad is vegan, grain free, and gluten free – even easily made paleo if you swap for a different nut butter.

I love this salad as a big side dish, or you can make it a hearty full meal by adding in some quinoa or brown rice, and topping with shredded chicken, tofu or sauteed shrimp if you’re feeling for some protein.

And if you don’t happen to have these veggies on hand in your home, you can swap in other veggies (different greens, add cucumber or some jalapenos!) or a different nut butter for the dressing based (almond butter or cashew butter would also taste great).

Packed with cruciferous veggies, plant-based protein, and healthy fats, this Thai chopped salad is what summertime dreams are made of!

Further Food Commentary:

Spinach is an excellent source of vitamin K, vitamin A, vitamin C and folate as well as being a good source of manganese, magnesium, iron and vitamin B2. Vitamin K is important for maintaining bone health and it is difficult to find vegetables richer in vitamin K than spinach
