Thai Peanut Salad

  • 1 bag of Success® Tri-Color Quinoa
  • 2 cups red cabbage, shredded
  • 1 ½ cups broccoli florets, chopped
  • ½ large red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 large carrot, chopped
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • ¼ cup cilantro
  • 1 batch Sesame Peanut Sauce, recipe follows
  • ¼ cup roasted peanuts



  • Prepare the Success Quinoa according to packaged instructions.
  • While the quinoa is boiling, chop the cabbage, carrots, bell peppers, broccoli, cilantro, and green onions. Set aside.
  • Combine all the ingredients for the peanut sauce in a small blender and blend together until smooth.
  • With tongs or a slotted spoon, remove the quinoa from boiling water. Cut open the bag and let it cool for 10 minutes.
  • Place quinoa in a large bowl and add prepared vegetables. Toss with peanut sauce and roasted peanuts.
  • Serve immediately or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.



Serving and Storing - Serve chilled as part of a summer potluck or for a light lunch or afternoon snack. Let the salad chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour before serving. This allows the salad to cool and lets the flavors marinate. Store leftover quinoa salad in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
Recipe Tips
  1. This recipe is highly versatile. Feel free to adjust the vegetables to your liking.
  2. For a heartier meal, add some protein. Peanut tempeh or tofu both go well.
  3. If you want to make this salad in advance, make it up to 1 day in advance and toss the salad dressing in right before serving.
