Any fans of The Office out there?
Meeker and I have probably seen every single episode five times, and could quote it at you for hours on end. We don’t have many friends. And Adrienne doesn’t seem to mind.
Anyway, remember that episode where Ryan, Pam, and Michael sit on the floor of their “office” sharing confessions that echo a very Breakfast Club feeling? Well, if you haven’t seen it, Ryan admits that didn’t spend a year in Thailand, but instead, spent a few months in Ft. Lauderdale where he ate some really good Pad Thai.
This is sort of like that.
I’ve never been to Thailand. But I do love some good Thai food. (Or what I imagine Thai food is like). After eating Mama Pea’s thai crunch salad yesterday, I had to have more.
More Thai flavors in my life. More delicious salad. So, I made another.
Thai Broccoli Slaw
1/2 head shredded cabbage
2 c broccoli slaw (I buy this in a bag – generic kroger brand, see picture above)
1 mango, diced
handful of cilantro leaves
1/4 c lemon juice
2 T chopped ginger
1 T red pepper flakes
1 T tahini
1 c almond butter
1 T reduced sodium soy sauce
2 T agave
1/2 cup water*
1 t salt
Combine all ingredients for the dressing in a food processor and blend until smooth. *You may need to add more or less water depending on how thick you’d like it.
Combine the cabbage, broccoli slaw, mango and cilantro in a bowl, then add the dressing.
Just like Ryan Howard, you’re probably going to eat this and then go around telling every one that you just spent a year in Thailand. But what do I know, I’ve never been to Thailand.
