Suchit's Thai Cabbage Salad V2

I love being invited to Suchit's for dinner. There is nothing better than having a wonderful Thai friend preparing beautiful foods like this delicious salad. That it only has 64 calories per hefty serving is a major win!

Thai Cabbage Salad V2
Serves 4

Dressing Ingredients:

3 1/2 tablespoons of Fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons of soy sauce (low sodium is good)
1/2 teaspoon of ground fresh chili paste*
1/2 teaspoon of minced fresh garlic

Salad Ingredients:

4-5 cups shredded cabbage your choice Napa, white, purple or a combination of colors (or one bag of pre-shredded cabbage)
1/2 cup of Shredded carrot
Green-leaf lettuce leaves
Garnish: thinly sliced green beans and tomatoes make a beautiful presentation.


Pour the lime juice and soy sauce in a small jar. Add the chili paste and garlic and shake well to mix. Set aside. Place shredded cabbage and carrot in a bowl. Mix well, taste and adjust the heat to your preference. Pour the dressing over the vegetables and toss to mix. Serve on whole lettuce leaves for a beautiful presentation.

This dish can be made as spicy as you like - just increase the chili paste.

*Suchit always grinds her own fresh chilis to make paste and you are welcome to grind as many as you like for this salad, but if you are like me, your mind rather boggles at that thought. I like to use Hong Kong Foods Chili Garlic Sauce. All good to go in a little jar with a rooster on it and a green lid.
