Crunchy Thai Peanut Salad

This Low-FODMAP Thai Peanut Salad is from a fantastic online resource by Dr. Rachel Pauls. Loaded with vitamins, fibre, and antioxidants this salad is gluten-free and vegan!

This hearty salad is delicious warm or cold, and is guaranteed to be a sure winner with guests. A true winner for any event, this salad is layered with lettuce, cabbage, carrots, spring onion, and coriander. Warm quinoa and edamame provide hearty protein and more texture, while the peanuts and seeds add flavour and crunch.
