Easy Rainbow Salad with Peanut Dressing ohsweetbasil.com

Last winter we tried out a new restaurant in Ogden called,  Thai Curry Kitchen where we had the most delicious Rainbow Salad. This is not that salad, but it did inspire me to make my own and next time I’ll totally be adding the edamame.

The best part about the salad was that it’s not like your normal salad. In fact, there’s no lettuce or greens other tan cilantro and I looooove that! We busted out our Spiralizer and went to town on carrots, zucchini, cucumber, and then a little peppers and red cabbage action all served with an easy peanut dressing. It’s prefect to mix up your next BBQ side dish.

Are Carrots Good For You?

Carrots are highly nutritious.

Carrots are a good source of beta carotene, fiber, vitamin K1, potassium, and antioxidants.

Carrots are weight-loss friendly and are linked to lower cholesterol levels and improved eye health.

Can Zucchini Be Eaten Raw?

Many people eat raw zucchini in salads and dips.

Zucchini contains zero fat, and is high in water and fiber.

It also contains significant amounts of vitamins B6, riboflavin, folate, C, and K.

Zucchini also contains potassium and manganese.

This summer squash also contains antioxidant and anti-inflammatory nutrients.

How Long Can You Keep Red Cabbage?

If cabbage is properly stored, it can last from 3 weeks to up to 2 months in your refrigerator.
