Thai-Style Singing Bowl Salad

ThaiStyleSingingBowlSalad

I was inspired to create this recipe after a trip to my local deli – they had the most delicious looking Szechuan-style salad which was unfortunately dressed with a canola-oil vinaigrette (which I’m allergic to)…  So after whetting my appetite I decided to whip up a similar salad on my own, and it turned out so good, I’m glad I did!  I try to look at food allergies as blessings, rather than restrictions, and this way I know exactly what I’m putting in my body and feeding my family.  With a plethora of raw and rainbow colored veggies, you will truly feel OMazing after eating this salad – great for a pre or post-yoga snack (or if you’d prefer, a little guilt-free Netflix binge…which is what I’m about to do after this!)

Super-quick and easy, this recipe makes for the perfect light lunch or dinner.  I’ve listed the “dressing” ingredients below without indicating quantities, so that you can easily customize it to your tastes.  NOM <3

* I highly recommend a julienne peeler for a super-fine slice – it makes this recipe quick and easy!  Click HERE to see the peeler I use 🙂
