Famous Crunchy Cashew Thai Quinoa Salad {vegan & gluten-free} #vegetariansalad #mealprep

Delectable veggie lover and effectively gluten free Thai quinoa serving of mixed greens with an ideal crunch. Ideal for supper prep snacks, picnics or gatherings. This serving of mixed greens is a group pleaser!

I made this serving of mixed greens half a month back and can hardly wait to attempt it once more! I adore that it can without much of a stretch be veggie lover and sans gluten, and is inconceivably crunch-tastic (not a word, yet ought to be). There's heaps of goodness here: carrots, cabbage, quinoa, cilantro, cashews, red pepper, onion and the sky is the limit from there. There is certainly an Asian flavor profile to this veggie lover feast and the smooth nutty spread dressing with a trace of ginger is totally TO DIE FOR.

I named it Thai Salad, however is it really that? I don't know. At last, the fixings all merge together impeccably and by one way or another the serving of mixed greens just works phenomenally — in addition to it's filling as well! In the event that you need to make this a total dinner or you're desiring more, I propose including edamame or chickpeas.

Famous Crunchy Cashew Thai Quinoa Salad {vegan & gluten-free} #vegetariansalad #mealprep


  • ¾ cup uncooked quinoa
  • 2 cups shredded red cabbage, depending on how much crunch you like
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • ½ cup chopped cilantro
  • ¼ cup diced green onions
  • ½ cup cashew halves or peanuts (honey-roasted is good)
  • Optional: 1 cup edamame or chickpeas
  • Fresh lime, for a bit of tang

For the dressing:

  • ¼ cup all natural peanut butter
  • 2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger
  • 3 tablespoon gluten-free soy sauce or coconut aminos
  • 1 tablespoon honey (use agave or pure maple syrup if vegan)
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar or red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil or more sesame oil
  • Water to thin, if necessary


  1. To cook quinoa: In a medium saucepan, bring 1 ½ cups of water to a boil. Add in quinoa and bring mixture to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low and let simmer for 15 minutes or until quinoa has absorbed all of the water. Remove from heat and fluff quinoa with fork; place in large bowl and set aside to cool for about 10 minutes. You should have a little over 2 cups of quinoa.
  2. To make dressing: Add peanut butter and honey or agave to a medium microwave safe bowl; heat in microwave for 20 seconds. Add in ginger, soy sauce, vinegar, and both sesame and olive oil and stir until mixture is smooth and creamy. If you want a thinner dressing, simply stir in a teaspoon or two of water or olive oil.
  3. Add as much or as little dressing as you’d like to the quinoa. I always start out with a little bit of dressing and usually add more to suit my taste preferences. Alternatively you can save the dressing for later and add when you are ready to eat; however the flavors of the dressing usually soak into the salad so I love adding it to the quinoa first.
  4. Next fold in red pepper, onion, cabbage, carrots, and cilantro into the quinoa. Garnish with cashews and green onions. Serve chilled or at room temperature with lime wedges, if desired.
