  • 1 bunch kale, stems removed, chopped
  • 3 carrots, peeled into ribbons or julienned
  • 1 bell pepper, red, yellow, or orange, chopped
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1 cup shelled edamame
  • 1 cup shredded red cabbage
  • 1 cup peanuts or cashews, chopped
  • 1 cup cilantro, roughly chopped


  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons tamari or soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 3 teaspoons sriracha
  • 2-3 tablespoons water


  • Place all the salad ingredients in a large bowl and toss to combine.
  • Place all the dressing ingredients except the water in a mason jar, close tightly, and shake to combine. Add water one tablespoon at a time, shaking to combine, until the desired consistency is met.
  • Pour dressing over individual servings of salad and toss gently to combine. Store any leftovers separately and add dressing just before serving.


If you don’t have a mason jar, you can combine the dressing ingredients in a medium bowl with a whisk or fork.
