Thai Salad

Thai SaladMany times, less really is more, and that is the case with this Thai Salad.  When our family visits the local Thai restaurant I always order this favorite.  The ingredients are simple.  Iceburg lettuce, cucumber slices, fresh cilantro, green onions, and nuts.  The dressing is light and sweetly savory.

  • 1 Head Iceburg Lettuce – chopped
  • 1 Bunch Fresh Cilantro Leaves – chopped fine
  • 1 Bunch Green Onions – chopped
  • 1 Cucumber – sliced
  • 1 cup peanuts or cashews


  • 1/4 cup Grape Seed Oil
  • 1/3 cup Rice Vinegar
  • 3-4 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper

In a large salad bowl add the lettuce, cucumbers, cilantro, and green onions.  Toss greens to mix well.

In a pint jar, add the grape seed oil, rice vinegar, sugar, and black pepper.  Place the lid on the jar and shake vigorously to blend.

Pour dressing over the salad right before serving and lightly toss to coat greens.  Top with peanuts or cashews.
