Pad Thai Kale Salad

Pad Thai Kale Salad

Kale, cabbage, and other vegetables get dressed in a flavorful peanut dressing for a raw take on pad Thai. It makes a delicious side or light lunch.

Pad Thai is a popular Asian dish that is both comforting and delicious, but not always easy to make at home. But restaurant versions are not always healthy, which is why we’ve put a twist on the traditional dish, with kale! If you can shred some veggies and whip up the delicious peanut flavored sauce to go with it, you can enjoy a kale salad dish that’s as satisfying as anything you’ll get from your favorite takeout place. Substitute almond butter for the peanut butter for a slightly different, yet equally delicious flavor.
