Thai Shrimp Salad w/ Peanut Dressing

20160509-Photo May 09, 6 24 27 PMI discovered Southern Breeze Sweet Tea late last year and fell in love with it’s classic sweet tea taste without the sugar/caloric guilt. (recap here) When Southern Breeze sent me their lemon flavored sweet tea and challenged me to create a flavorful & healthy recipe to pair with it; I instantly thought of a Thai inspired dish! 

Welcome the Thai shrimp salad with homemade peanut dressing.  I cut up a bunch of veggies frequently found in Thai dishes: red peppers, cucumbers, carrots; and added it to the mothership of greens- KALE! As far as the shrimp goes I marinated the shrimp in a mix of lemon juice, EVVO, cilantro, honey, garlic, salt & pepper for about an hour before sautéing. But the real flavor comes from the homemade peanut dressing! Made with natural creamy peanut butter, greek yogurt, soy sauce, honey -its so easy and delicious. Check out the recipe below and make sure to pair it with Southern Breeze’s new Lemon flavored Sweet Tea. Perfect for warmer weather!20160509-Photo May 09, 5 44 12 PM 20160509-Photo May 09, 6 03 20 PM20160509-Photo May 09, 6 16 34 PM20160509-Photo May 09, 6 24 27 PM 20160509-Photo May 09, 6 23 16 PM 20160509-Photo May 09, 6 22 44 PM20160509-Photo May 09, 6 26 32 PM20160509-Photo May 09, 6 28 27 PM20160509-Photo May 09, 6 31 38 PM20160509-Photo May 09, 6 40 09 PM20160509-Photo May 09, 6 41 52 PM 20160509-Photo May 09, 6 41 01 PM

    Cant wait to try this! Looks so yummy and healthy ! question how do you think it would be with Almond butter? I know Thai food uses peanut a lot – just haven’t had peanut butter in ages. Thanks for the post and the pictures are fantastic

      Hey Lori,

      I am sure almond butter could work although the peanut butter really gives it a strong flavor!
