Man oh man do I love spring rolls. But to be honest, I am not a big fan of the patience it takes to roll them. Everything about the perfect spring roll + more is in this salad. The perfectly sweet and spicy peanut sauce, fresh fruit and veggies, super hearty rice noodles, its all there!

This salad is great because its perfect for layering into jars for meal prep, and such a nice fresh meal when the weather starts to warm up. You can mix and match your fruits and veggies depending on where you live and the availability because lets be real, EVERYTHING is good with peanut sauce.


Makes 4 salads.

The Goods:

The Peanut Dressing:

  • 1 cup peanut butter

  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos

  • 1 tbsp sesame oil

  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar

  • 1 tsp sriracha 

  • 3/4 cup water

The Salad:

  • 1 package black or brown rice noodles, cooked (I love lotus foods)

  • 1/4 cabbage, sliced

  • 1 cucumber, diced

  • 1 bell pepper, seeded and chopped

  • 1 mango, sliced

  • 1 avocado, sliced

  • 1 tsp sesame seeds (optional)

The Method:

  1. Mix all ingredients for the dressing together in a bowl, set aside.

  2. If you are assembling in jars, start with the dressing, then the avocado, the rest of the veggies and end with the noodles.

  3. If making in a bowl, use the noodles and cabbage as the base and then top with the cucumber, bell pepper, mango, avocado and sesame seeds. Enjoy!
