My friend and fellow Diner, NeeCee, asked for some salad dressing recipes. I have shared a few in the past, and have had some dismal failures that never made it into the blog or newsletter. This recipe is a new one I just tried today. This dressing is inspired by a find in Bon Appetit. I tweaked it a bit to our tastes, and wow! I love it. It is made into a coleslaw, but would be equally as good over a bok choy and napa cabbage salad.
Unlike most coleslaws, which are based from mayo or oil, this one uses peanut butter. Who doesn't love that? I used two Tablespoons of creamy and three tablespoons of chunky peanut butter, because I love little bits of nut in my salad. This one should be assembled fresh, though. I don't think it would hold too well. I think I would classify this recipe as an "E.Z. Fix" recipe. For a complete meal, it would be especially good as a "Freezer Favorite" with some Chicken Cubes thrown in too.
This is one of the recipes included in my new cookbook project, Low Carbing Among Friends.

I have been trying out a Raspberry Vinaigrette, but I managed to get another sick kitchen appliance. My brand new immersion blender, fresh from the box, refuses to work at all. Guess I have another trip to the store. Hopefully I can squeeze in that and the rest of my prep day recipes too. I'll post that one when I get it all done!
