For dressing

For salad

  • 1 cup carrots shredded
  • 1 cup green papaya shredded
  • 1 cup cucumber peeled, seeded, and sliced
  • 2 cups bok choy sliced
  • 1 red chili pepper sliced
  • 2 chicken breasts cooked, shredded or cut in small pieces
  • 1/4 cup mint chopped
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds or peanuts
  • 3 cups green cabbage shredded


  • Make the dressing: Whisk all the ingredients for the dressing together in a bowl or give them a shake in a mason jar. You can microwave the peanut butter for 10-15 seconds to soften it for easier mixing if needed.
  • Mix the salad: Add all the salad ingredients to a large bowl along with the dressing. Toss everything well, serve, and enjoy!


If you anticipate leftovers, I would leave the dressing off the salad and toss as needed. The veggies tend to get soggy after a day sitting with the dressing and are not as appetizing.
This salad will last 4 days in an airtight container in the fridge.
