Make This Spicy Peanut Butter Dressing And Douse Everything You Eat In It From Now On

Our peanut butter obsession knows no bounds. Occasionally I might gripe about the hipster takeover that is peanut butter’s rise to foodie favour,?but then I have to admit that it makes everything taste better, even salad. This salad dressing is so tasty it will seduce even the most salad-resistant peeps (I’m talking about The Man, of course).


Peanut Butter Dressing

Serves 2

For the dressing combine:

  • 2 tablespoons crunchy peanut butter
  • 2 teaspoons dark miso paste
  • ?juice of – lime
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon soft brown sugar
  • ? red chilli, deseeded and finely diced

Good things to drench with the dressing:

  • 1 carrot, cut into matchsticks
  • 1 red pepper, deseeded and thinly sliced
  • 2 spring onions, sliced
  • 1 head of baby gem lettuce, roughly shredded
  • 40g mixed fresh basil, mint and coriander, finely chopped
  • 2 cooked chicken breasts,?roughly torn
  • 60g roasted cashew nuts

Method:

Put the peanut butter, miso paste, lime juice,?water, sugar, and chilli into a large bowl and whisk until well combined.?Add the carrot, red pepper, spring onions,?lettuce, herbs and chicken to the dressing and toss well until all the components are evenly coated. Divide the mixture between two bowls and scatter the roasted cashew nuts over the top.
