Thai inspired protein packed salad

Thai inspired protein packed salad

Now that summer is on the horizon means we can take advantage of things like mangoes and fresh, zingy summer salads! This is a really easy thai inspired salad and you can use any kind of protein that suits you. If you are cooking a BBQ or family dinner this is the perfect opportunity to cook a bit extra and use it in the salad for the next day. I had half a fillet of cooked salmon available and some delicious cooked prawns! Perfect post-workout meal! YUM!!

You will need:

For the salad:
1 x carrot, spiralised or julienned
1 x zuchinni, spiralised or julienned
½ a bunch of mint, roughly chopped
½ a bunch of coriander roughly chopped
2-3 kaffir lime leaves, deveined and sliced finely
2 tbsp peanuts roughly chopped
½ a red chilli, roughly chopped
8-10 cherry tomatoes, halved
½ red onion, sliced finely
1/2 a mango, diced
For the dressing:
1 tsp fresh ginger, grated
1 tbsp fresh lime juice
2 tsp fish sauce
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp soy sauce
½ garlic clove, crushed
2 tsp coconut sugar
sprinkling of sesame seeds
For the cooked protein:
Salmon
Prawns
Tofu
Beans
Egg
Chicken
Beef 
(any protein really!)

Serves 2

Method:

  • Prepare all of your salad ingredients. I like to chop the onion and place in some water to soak for a few minutes. Drain when ready to serve – it will just take away a lot of the overpowering ‘onion taste’ but it will still be yummy.
  • Place all of your dressing ingredients into a bowl. Whisk or stir.
  • Add your protein into the salad and mix well. Add your dressing and serve into bowls
  • Enjoy!

Notes:

  • If you can get hold of some thai basil this also makes a great addition to the salad!
