This kind of reminds me of a super healthy version of pad thai. Like a pad thai but in crunchy salad form. The blend of vegetables gives the salad the perfect mixture of flavors and textures. The carrots and bell peppers bring a hint of sweetness, while the broccoli and spinach add their brilliant earthy flavors, which is all balanced out with the brightness from the green onions. And then there’s the quinoa which makes the whole salad feel fluffy and light, and the peanuts for some added crunch. But, what makes this salad distinctly Thai-inspired is the wonderful peanut-y dressing. I went for a clean eating version and made a simple dressing that boasts a ton of flavor and brings this whole salad to life.
