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.

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

    I just found your site a couple days ago and Over already made two salads! We loved this one. The dressing has a very vibrant flavor and compliments the flavors of the salad quite well. The only thing I would change is to cut the pepper even small as mine were longer than everything shredded and chopped.

    Six months into quarantine and I have cooked my way through your cookbooks- and loved every minute/ meal. However, it is time to eat well but a little lighter. Would love more recipes- with the Gaby spin on lighter meals.
    Thank you!

    So perfect. I made a similar marinade and grilled chicken to go with it and some rice noodles to toss in. Delicious! Thank you!! Also makes enough for my lunches most of the days this week. Awesome!
