Keeping things on the healthier side today with this colorful and flavorful Chopped Thai Salad.

Let’s take a quick poll – just leave your answer in the comments – do we want more healthy recipes on the blog this time of year?? I feel like fall recipes are so often really decadent which I am 1000% okay with, but also I love a good healthy fall meal too. Thoughts? Leave them below.

Today we’re for sure on the healthy train because I ate like a jerk over the weekend. SO many cookies, cocktails, burgers, steaks, fries… the works. And today I need a re-set. This Chopped Thai Salad is LOADED with everything you need to keep things light and bright. Tons of veggies and a really light vinaigrette that you’ll love. You could add some roasted salmon or chicken or steak if you want extra protein too. But brace yourselves, because you’ll want 4 servings of this it’s THAT good!! Have at it! xo

    What brand of rice wine vinegar do you use for the dressing? Is rice wine the same as rice wine vinegar? Sorry if that’s a stupid question! Thanks !!

    Yes please! Every fall dish is so heavy. Easy, healthy, but still enjoy the seasons produce.

    I made this last night and it was delish! I opted for the shrimp, as a protein, like you did on your video! The only thing is that my local WF did not carry chili garlic sauce, so I substituted it with sweet chili sauce; and thought I had honey but did not. So, I opted for some agave that I had in my pantry :). Yum, yum!
