Thai Salad with Miso Peanut Dressing

Jump to Recipe

Anyone else when they hear the word Miso – want to say ‘Mi-so this, Mi-so that’?

Okay, just me. And yes, I am okay with my quirky sense of humor. (LOL)

This is one of the recipes that you can pull together with staples in your fridge. Because that is just what I did!

Every week at the grocery I feel like I spend an extraordinary amount of dollars on groceries (is it just me or do prices just seem to rise..and rise..and rise..) but by end of week my fridge is empty! (or almost)

So when the fridge approaches empty, my focus becomes “Let’s get this fridge as bare as possible – grocery shopping is tomorrow!”

So enter the ingredients for this salad left in the crisper, broccoli, one yellow pepper, spinach and onion. Plus I remembered that I had some water chestnuts in the pantry!

I can work with this!

And the best part, as we ate it, my husband stated “We should have more Thai-inspired dishes like this!”

Win. Win. Win for this easy Thai Salad with Miso Peanut Dressing that is vegan, plant based, gluten and dairy free!
