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)
