Whole30 Thai Curry Salad
Well, isn’t it about time that I shared this lovely Whole30 Thai Curry Salad recipe with you guys? Let’s just say I did NOT hold back when it came to this recipe: it’s packed with all kinds of nutrients and it’s super quick and easy to make, too!
I’m all about that curry, let me tell you. Last year, I made a Curry recipe (two ways) that is absolutely to die far. I also enjoy making curry aioli, curried roasted cauliflower, scrambled eggs topped off with a few shakes of curry powder- really, you name it. I love it… if it has curry on it. Oh, speaking of eggs, did I mentioned Deviled Duck Eggs? This recipe incorporates curry into the filling, too! The curry addition is explains why I love this salad oh so dearly. I really wanted to create a nutritious, delicious AND filling salad recipe that paleo friends and vegan loves could rejoice over, collectively.
The reality of it is, that those who follow a paleo lifestyle and a vegan lifestyle aren’t all that different. I’m not sure why there is so much animosity between the two groups at times. I think if we could all just talk to one another and gather a firm understanding that we truly care about a lot of the same things, we’d all be best friends forever. Sure, vegans don’t eat meat. However, those who are die-hard Paleo advocates, will only purchase their meat from local purveyors who exercise responsible and ethical farm-keeping practices.
So, we both care for animals- check, check! See? Am I on to something here?
This Whole30 Thai Curry Salad will leave you feeling extremely satiated. If you’re feeling like you want to add some meat to it though, I’d recommend grilling up some chicken breast or thighs to plop right on top! My husband, Tim and I ate this entire salad sans meat, and there were definitely no complaints. Tim was actually really surprised about how much he enjoyed it. I don’t usually make salads because I find them to be rather boring but when I bring curry to the table, boring is the last word on my mind!
Aren’t all of these vibrant colors making you drool all over the place? That’s the goal.
The bold colors in this Thai Curry Salad are representative of all of the bold nutrients and vitamins all of its ingredients possess.
The blackberries are full of antioxidants, the cashews are full of healthy fats, there is an excess of vitamin A coming from those carrots and plenty of magnesium, potassium and omega-3 fatty acids in all of that kale! Seriously, I have hooked you up!
Go ahead and check out the recipe! I dare ya… ! If you’re feeling ambitious and want to incorporate it into your next meal plan, be sure to pin it for later. Just store the dressing in an air-tight container, separate from the salad. It will stay good for up to (1) week!
