I don’t mean to holler at you but have you heard the news? It’s National Hummus Day! Which is pretty much our households favorite food holiday.

This year we are celebrating this perfect hummus filled day with a gorgeous crunchy fresh thai salad with a super creamy delicious thai peanut dressing. And our little secret? That peanut sauce gets it’s creamy consistency from our favorite healthy swap….hummus!

Instead of gobs of peanut butter in the thai peanut dressing, we subbed in hummus for that same consistency and then finished it with just a bit of peanut butter. Same awesome peanut filled flavor but way better for you! Which is a good thing since I ate half of this recipe by myself before it got home….oops.

In case you are wondering if this falls into one of those “hippy crunchy foods” as my husband calls it I’ll just leave this picture right here. Yum!

We ate this as a stand alone salad and then also had it over noodles which was a delicious twist. The great thing about this salad is that the base is kale and broccoli slaw which means you don’t end up with wilted greens in 2 minutes. This salad actually gets better the longer it sits as the thai salad dressing slowly soften the vegetables.

  • 2 teaspoons sriracha sauce
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 4-6 cups finely chopped kale stems removed
  • 2 cups broccoli slaw roughly chopped, prepackaged with the salads in produce

Instructions

Notes

Extra lime juice and rice wine vinegar may be needed overtime to soften the salad. It will continue to absorb the sauce as it sits so keep on hand and taste before serving so it isn’t too dry.
