Shredded vegetable salad with red curry coconut dressing recipe
This salad is the perfect combination of hot and spicy and cool and crunchy for summer days
Note: If you are cooking for younger or more delicate tummies you can reduce the red curry paste or just use a sprinkling of curry powder instead. If you want to make this ahead of time, simply leave the salad and dressing separate until serving. The dressing recipe makes a large quantity. If you do not use the whole amount it will last up to four days in an airtight container in the fridge.
