Designed for a cold salad, this recipe can also be made with veggies that are lightly steamed or sautéed if you would like it hot.

½ cup sesame oil

¼ cup sweet chili sauce

½ tbsp.  Thai garlic chili paste

½ cup thinly sliced celery, cut on bias

½ cup thinly sliced red onion

½ cup thinly sliced bell pepper (red, yellow, orange, or mixed)

½ cup shredded cabbage

2 Tbsp. sesame seeds

2 Tbsp. salted roasted peanuts (or nuts of choice)

Pre-cook protein of your choice.  Make ahead and chill if you want the protein to be cold.  Blend tamari, sesame oil, chili sauce, and chili paste. Add blended sauce to vegetables and protein, and mix well.  Sprinkle top with sesame seeds and peanuts.
