Tangled Thai Salad by

At Fresh we use a turning slicer (spiralizer) to cut the carrot and yellow beets into super-long, thin strands that form a big round tangle of a salad. You probably donít have a turning slicer at home, so itís worth getting a julienne peeler, which will give you nice long strands as well. They wonít be mega-long, like ours, but a turning slicer is about $100, and a julienne peeler is only about $10, so itís a pretty good compromise. If you donít have either, just cut the vegetables into sticks as thin and long as you can. This dressing will keep for up to a week in the fridge. It is delicious on the Tangled Thai Salad, but would be equally good on any salad or even poured on top of cold noodles.

Ingredients

1 cup chopped napa cabbage
1/3 cup sliced jicama (cut into small sticks)
