Rad Thai (SweetGreen) Copycat Salad Monday, January 12, 2015, 02:43 PM
Meredith and I made a salad inspired by one we had at Sweet Green. The salad was based on Rad Thai:
"organic arugula + organic mesclun, sprouts, carrots, shredded cabbage, spicy sunflower seeds, cucumbers, basil, citrus shrimp, spicy cashew dressing"
We made our salad with
Super-Firm tofu (marinade in Soyaki + Sriracha and baked)
We then attempted a salad dressing with: (inspired by this image)
1 Tbsp Sriracha
1/4 roasted cashews
1/4 cup pistatios
1 tsp sesame oil
juice of 1/2 lime
1/2 in. ginger
~1/2 cup cilantro (not packed)
water to thin (probably 1/4 to 1/2)
We used the immersion blender in a cup to blend. That was a huge mess. But it eventually came together.
The thing is, theirs is a claimed 370 calories. Guessing at fat, it is around 10 to 11 points. Ours we calculated to be much higher. Maybe the nuts in the dressing. Not sure. But the salad was very good!
