This Thai Salad with Peanut Dressing is a zesty and delicious Asian inspired salad that is great for lunch or for dinner. Some of the fresh ingredients I added are purple cabbage, red pepper, romaine lettuce, shredded carrots, and green onions. I topped it off with a spicy and flavorful peanut dressing that really made the salad pop.
