Thai Salad with Cilantro Lime Dressing has flavors that I just can’t enough of!

This Thai Salad with Cilantro Lime Dressing recipe is totally fresh and a way to get in more veggies! Paleo and Whole30 friendly! | stephgaudreau.com

When I came back from Scotland, all I was craving was super fresh veggies and this salad fits the bill. It’s inspired by one I had at Tender Greens but now that I made my own version I can have it any time without driving to the restaurant—plus, it’s nicer on my wallet and Whole30-friendly.

The key to making this super-special is to use the freshest veggies you can find; it makes a huge difference. All quantities are approximate, and if you don’t like an ingredient, certainly leave it out or substitute it for something else. Top it with your protein of choice—grilled steak, pan-fried lemon chicken or shrimp would all be outstanding—for a complete meal.

Ingredients

For the Salad:

  • 1 head green leaf lettuce roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup green papaya julienned
  • 3 tangerines peeled and segmented
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 1/4 cup fresh thai basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup cashews

For the Dressing:

  • 3 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tsp coconut aminos
  • 1/4 tsp fish sauce
  • 1 handful cilantro
  • 1/2 tsp honey optional but omit for Whole30

Instructions

For the Salad:

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and toss well. I kept the mint and basil leaves whole, but you could always chop them.

For the Dressing:

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a food processor and blitz until the cilantro leaves are finely chopped and everything is combined.
  2. Use right away or store for 1 to 2 days, tightly covered in the fridge. Give it a shake before using.
