  • 1 red, yellow or orange bell pepper cut into 1/2 inch dice
  • 4-6 whole scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 large red apple, cut into julienne strips
  • 1 cup chopped fresh cilantro
Dressing:
  • 1 T peanut butter, chunky or smooth
  • 4 tablespoons seasoned rice vinegar (be sure to buy the “seasoned” kind which is slightly sweetened and important in this recipe)

  • 3/4 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • juice of 1 large fresh lime
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp each, salt and freshly ground pepper
Garnish:
  • 1/2 cup roasted peanuts, coarsely chopped

Combine dressing ingredients in a jar with a lid. Shake thoroughly to blend well. In a large salad bowl, combine greens, bell pepper, scallions, apple, cilantro. Toss thoroughly with dressing, sprinkle over nuts and serve.
