Makin' Up for the Bacon Cinnamon Rolls

For a treat that's a lot better for you than the bacon cinnamon rolls from the other day, try this. It's a half-ass attempt of the Thai apple salad I get at the restaurant (Lamai's Thai Kitchen) down the street.

the juice from 2 limes
about a table spoon of sesame oil
around a table spoon of peanut butter
a couple teaspoons of sugar
and a teaspoon or so of soy sauce

I don't measure things. Anyway mix those up you might want to microwave it for 15 minutes to get the peanut butter to mix.

Then Julienne 2 or 3 Granny Smith apples, 3 or 4 celery stalks, a quarter of a red onion. Chop a cup or so of cilantro and smash a palm full of peanuts. Combine all these in a bowl and dump the dressing over it. It tastes good right away but if you let it sit for a couple hours (and your celery was jullienned into thin pieces) the celery will absorb the dressing making it even better.

This is where I would post a picture of the dish if it could've lasted long enough for a picture.

It's great as a snack, I like it for breakfast but it's probably at it's best following a spicy Thai meal.
