This easy Thai-style salad is a refreshing addition to your lunch repertoire and can be enjoyed both as a side dish or a light meal. It is easy to prepare and packs a big punch of flavour.

Toss all the ingredients together (cabbage, lettuce, red pepper, carrot, mint, coriander, peanuts) in a large mixing bowl. Mix all the dressing ingredients together in a small mixing bowl using a hand whisk or stick blender (it takes some elbow grease by hand) to form a smooth sauce. Pour half the dressing over the salad just before serving and toss to coat. Serve the remainder of the dressing on the side.
