Method:

  • For the salad dressing – Mix together peanut butter*, honey, ginger, apple cider vinegar and oil. Add little water at a time until the desired consistency.
  • *To make your own peanut butter, first roast the raw peanuts. Once cooled, grind the peanuts until it turns into butter. Keep scraping down the peanuts in intervals while grinding. Add a pinch of salt. (Add a teaspoon of groundnut oil for creamier peanut butter). If you have ready made organic peanut butter (unsweetened) then use 2.5 Tbsp. of the readymade peanut butter instead.
  • Once the dressing is ready, roast the unsalted cashew nuts. Keep aside and let it cool down.
  • Now prepare the veggies. Combine together the lettuce, red cabbage, carrots, red and yellow bell pepper, green onions, and the roasted cashew nuts. Toss it up.
  • Drizzle the salad dressing over the salad and garnish with some roasted seeds of your choice. Squeeze some lime over the salad if desired. Enjoy!
