Malaysian Carrot and Cucumber Salad
The thing that makes this carrot and cucumber salad recipe so delicious is the tasty peanut dressing.
Difficulty rating: Easy
Serves: 4 as an accompaniment
4” piece of cucumber, cut into thin strips
½ red pepper, cut into strips
2 tbsp fresh coriander leaves
For the dressing:
3 tbsp crunchy peanut butter
1 tbsp dark soy sauce
1 tbsp boiling water
1 sml clove of garlic, crushed
A pinch of chili powder
Using a potato peeler, peel all of the carrots so that they resemble “ribbons”.
Cut the ribbons in half length ways so that you get slimmer strips.
Arrange the carrot on a plate alongside the cucumber, red pepper and coriander leaves.
To make the dressing, add the dressing ingredients into a bowl and mix together. Drizzle over the salad.
