  • ½ tablespoon soy sauce
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoons fresh coriander leaves

Instructions

FOR THE SALAD

  • Shred the carrots, or cut them thinly.
  • Boil the edamame, strain and keep aside.
  • Chop the white cabbage, red cabbage, capsicum and mint leaves.
  • Dry roast peanuts in a small frying-pan and let cool.
  • Finally, place all the ingredients in a large bowl and toss to combine. Drizzle peanut dressing as needed, toss again. Serve immediately.

Notes

  1. Mix the dressing into the salad ONLY at the time of serving to prevent your salad from getting soggy
  2. To add extra crunch, use thinly sliced carrots instead of shredded carrot
