This salad is quick to throw together and is great by itself or served on top of rice or quinoa. The carrots are long and spaghetti-like, and if you eat it with chopsticks it’s a guaranteed 145% more fun.


  • 4 cups chopped packed curly kale
  • 1 large carrot (peeled into thin strips)
  • 1 yellow or red bell pepper (seeds removed and sliced thinly)
  • 2 scallions (chopped thinly)
  • ½ cup chopped basil
  • ½ cup chopped cilantro
  • ⅔ cup roasted cashews or peanuts (chopped finely)
  • Dressing
  • Juice of 1 large lime
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 23 tablespoons tamari or soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons agave (maple syrup or brown sugar)
  • 1 tablespoon ground fresh chili paste
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • ½ ” cube of fresh ginger
  • splash of apple cider vinegar


  1. In a food processor, blend all of the dressing ingredients. Season to taste, then set aside.
  2. In a bowl, combine the kale, carrots, peppers, fresh herbs, scallions, and nuts. Toss with the salad dressing and garnish with extra chopped nuts.
