Paradise Thai Salad

So, I took a Thai salad recipe and put my own twist on it. It has so much more flavor than the normal Thai salad. I'm all about flavor! This salad rocks and my kids couldn't stop eating it! 

Paradise Thai Salad
  • 1 pkg wheat spaghetti noodles
  • 2 cups thinly sliced cucumbers, halfed
  • 1 pkg matchstick carrots
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 cup peanuts (optional)
  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 Tbsp tightly packed cilantro
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 2 Tbsp + 2 tsp lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp ground ginger or ginger powder
  • 1/2 cup coconut creme (NOT coconut milk - you can find this on the margarita mix isle - it's thick and is very sweet)
  • 1/4 tsp Cayenne pepper or chili powder (optional) 
  • tiny pinch of salt 

Boil noodles for about 10-12 minutes. Cool. Place in a salad bowl with remaining ingredients. Place dressing ingredients in a blender and blend well. Pour dressing over salad and toss. Serve warm or chill. Enjoy!
