Skip the takeout and try our veggie-packed, Thai-inspired salad instead! It’s super flavorful and simple to make. Our secret ingredient? Powdered peanut butter! This pure, pulverized nut creation reduces the fat that comes with normal peanut butter but brings all the flavor to your homemade sauces and dressings. A little goes a long way with powdered peanut butter, meaning you can add the savory, nutty, sweet flavor to your dish for just 1-2 SmartPoints. For added heat, we have jalapeño peppers, balanced with fresh mint to round out the Thai flavor profile. To complete the meal for one serving, have one cup of this salad with grilled chicken breast.
