Today we are sharing another meatless recipe from Better Homes and Gardens. Salads are a staple in our home. I could eat a salad every day for dinner or lunch. In fact, I often do. Salad is a chance to let your inner child loose and explore new ingredients. The sky is the limit with greens and toppings. This Cabbage and Carrot Salad with Peanut Sauce is loaded with some really great flavor combinations.

I made two simple changes to BHG’s recipe. I used vegetable broth instead of chicken broth for the peanut sauce. I also added bell peppers to the salad.  I always try to sneak more veggies into my salads!

Substituting the chicken broth for the veggie makes this a great vegetarian option. The dressing perfectly coasts the fresh veggies and will leaving you savoring every last crunchy bite.

Adding the bell peppers was an easy addition to the salad. Just a thin slice of the pepper and a toss with the other ingredients and you have instantly added more flavor, color and crunch!

  1. To view the recipe via the bhg link, you must click on (or tap if using tablet/phone) “Delish Dish”. Then the recipe will appear!

  2. Not sure if my last comment was clear. After tapping “delish dish” on two peas and their pod’s page to go to the bhg page, there is another “Delish Dish” to tap. THEN the recipe comes up. =) It is a little confusing because the “Delish Dish” on the bhg page is inside a rectangular heading box at the top of the page and does not look like a link. I hope this helps those of you who couldn’t open the recipe.

  3. Beautiful colours! Feeding the eyes as well as the stomach. This would be a great end of summer dinner here while the days are still warm, and the leftovers would make my lunchbox bright and delicious!
