Meatless Monday: Thai Chopped Salad

I'm not sure what inspired me here but I've been craving a Thai chopped salad for quite a while. No better way to satisfy that than to make it myself (it's also Monday ;-)). Salad is something that can tend to get boring, only because we're not adventurous enough with it. There are so many different types of salads and dressings, much more than caesar or basic lettuce, tomatoes and cucumber tossed salad. It's a light and healthy choice as long as you don't load it with too much bacon! 
I'm not writing a cookbook (right now, haha), so I'm also not recipe testing; I'm sharing with you my food adventures! My salad consisted of kale, red bell peppers, carrots, celery, edamame, cashews and portugal with a peanut-sesame dressing (grapeseed oil, peanut butter, light soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil & sesame seeds). As with most dishes, there's no one way to make it; substitute based on what you like and you surely won't be disappointed.

Have fun and get adventurous with your salad. There's more to salad than lettuce. Roasted vegetables, beans, grains, you name it... make a salad out of it!
