Never bring a sad desk lunch to work again. Now, you can make your own home cooked Thai dish that you'll want to prepare again and again, for lunch or dinner! This grilled chicken salad and DIY peanut sauce is scrumptious, and you'll rest easy knowing exactly what's in it (forget those commercially made condiments with tons of hidden sugar). The generous helping of dressing you get is super creamy, you'll never believe it's dairy-free! Garnished with fresh mint and chopped scallions, the robust flavors make this deceptively simple salad truly stand out. This is a great candidate for batch cooking ahead of time to assemble each day when you're ready to eat!
