All in the Cupboard Salad w/Thai Peanut Dressing

Kim Biegacki


I was thinking this could also be called Asian Pantry Salad because everything comes from a can. I sure love the layered salads because they look so festive in a glass dish. You'll be crunching and chewing on this salad for awhile and won't even miss that there isn't any meat in it. I topped this salad with a Thai peanut dressing that is smooth and creamy with a little spicy kick to it. They taste great together.

Well, I hope you enjoy.

(Oh, almost forgot to mention to have some toothpicks on hand for your guests because of the sesame seeds. hehe)

How To Make The Perfect Hard Boiled Egg Recipe

How to Make the Perfect Hard Boiled Egg

Kitchen Crew @JustaPinch

They pack protein into a salad, are a fantastic on-the-go breakfast and a necessity for making deviled eggs. Hard boiled eggs are fantastic but are a bit intimidating to cooks....
