Time to get back on track, the good eating plan track that is! I’m so excited to have the opportunity to work with Peanut Butter & Co. with their newly introduced line of Mighty Nut Powder Peanut Butter, with low-fat, gluten-free, certified vegan and 6 grams of protein per serving!
As I arrived back home from Chicago, this awesome product was waiting for me. I couldn’t wait to get started putting together a savory and a sweet (coming later) recipe idea to share with readers and followers! So craving a local restaurant favorite, Tuesday night I opted to put together a little Thai inspired salad with a Peanut Sauce dressing that is super simple and packed with flavor. And the salad is so versatile you can add additional ingredients to make it even more hearty for a meal instead of a side dish.
Here’s the “skinny” on putting it together!
For the Salad –
- Baby Bok Choy, rinsed & chopped
- Romaine Mix, chopped
- Carrots, diced
- Yellow Pepper, diced
- Green Onion, chopped
- Red Onion, chopped
- Tomatoes, sliced
- Bean Sprouts
- Grilled protein of choice (optional)
- 2 1/2 tbsp Mighty Nut Powdered Peanut Butter Original
- 2 tbsp Dry Roasted Unsalted Peanuts, chopped
- 4 tbsp Aged White Wine Vinegar (or Rice Wine Vinegar)
- 2 tsp Soy Sauce
- 1/2 tsp fresh Ginger, grated
- 1 Garlic Clove, grated
- 2 tsp Cane Sugar (or more if you like it a little sweeter)
In a bowl combine powdered peanut butter, vinegar and soy sauce and whisk together. Next, add ginger, garlic and sugar. If too stiff add a little more vinegar. Finally, once everything is combined add peanuts and set aside until ready to serve.
Coming later next week, a sweet treat incorporating the Mighty Nut Protein Powder Vanilla AND a Giveaway!!!
