Pad Thai Salad

I used to love the freshness of a Pad Thai Salad when travelling around Asia. It was definitely one of my favourite dishes there. I got the recipe for the dressing from a lovely Thai woman and recreated the salad myself at home.

This serves 2 people as a main but could easily be shared amongst 4 as a side


  • 1 large Courgette/zucchini
  • 1 small carrot, shredded
  • 1/2 small red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup bean sprouts
  • 2 green/spring onions thinly chopped (plus more for garnish)
  • 2 tbsp fresh coriander chopped (plus more for garnish)
  • 2 tbsp cashews
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges


  • 50g almond butter
  • 50ml water
  • 1/2 fresh lime
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil melted
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp coriander leaves, chopped
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1/2 small chilli chopped (leave this out if you don’t like spice)
  • 1 clove garlic


  1. Cut off the ends of the zucchini/courgette and discard.
  2. Using a spiralizer, spiralize the zucchini for the thinnest noodle. Place in a salad bowl.
  3. Shred the carrots and chop the red bell peppers. Toss them into the salad bowl along with bean sprouts, green onions, and coriander.
  4. Mix to combine and set aside.
  5. In a blender or food processor combine all the ingredients for the dressing, blending until smooth. 
  6. Pour over the Pad Thai and toss to coat.
  7. Divide evenly between two separate plates and top with cashews, some fresh coriander and green onions. 
  8. Squeeze fresh lime juice over pad thai and enjoy!

Recipe Tips

  • The almond butter sauce is quite spicy. If you are sensitive to spice, reduce the amount of jalapeño or omit it altogether.
  • Because this is raw, it’s important to use the best vegetables. Make sure they are healthy, perfectly ripe, and unbruised.
  • Wait to toss together the Pad Thai and sauce until ready to serve to prevent soggy vegetables.
