Recipe

It’s getting hot and the idea of turning on my stove during the day is becoming less and less appealing. That means lots of salads for lunch utilizing leftover protein from other meals. Yesterday I was craving something sweet and spicy so I decided to create a simple salad using sweet chili sauce and peanut butter in the dressing. The result was sweet and spicy, just was I was looking for. Rounded out with some crunchy vegetables, a touch of cilantro, and some extra protein from the edamame and peanuts and it makes a delicious lunch or dinner. Also for those of you who dine at Panera frequently, you may recognize this as an adaptation of their Thai Chicken Salad.
