Ingredients

  • 6 cups (300g) thinly sliced wombok (Chinese cabbage)
  • 1 bunch asparagus, woody ends trimmed, thinly sliced diagonally
  • 200g snow peas, strings removed, thinly sliced lengthways
  • 1 continental cucumber, halved lengthways, seeded, thinly sliced diagonally
  • 1 carrot, peeled, cut into long matchsticks
  • 250g cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 bunch coriander, leaves picked
  • 1 bunch mint, leaves picked
  • 3/4 cup (105g) unsalted roasted peanuts, chopped

Shallot dressing

  • 1/4 cup (60ml) soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup (75g) caster sugar
  • 6 limes, rind finely grated, juiced
  • 1/3 cup (55g) finely chopped shallots
  • 2 tbs minced lemongrass

Method

STEP 1

To make the shallot dressing, whisk the soy sauce, sugar, lime rind and 2/3 cup (160ml) lime juice in a large bowl until sugar dissolves. Add shallots and lemongrass. Set aside for 10 mins to develop the flavours. Season with salt.

STEP 2

Meanwhile, in a separate large bowl, combine the wombok, asparagus, snow peas, cucumber, carrot, tomatoes, three-quarters of the coriander, three-quarters of the mint and half the peanuts.

STEP 3

Just before serving, add 3/4 cup (185ml) of the dressing to the wombok mixture. Season with salt and toss to combine. Season with more salt or lime juice, if needed.

STEP 4

Transfer the salad to a large serving platter. Sprinkle with the remaining coriander, mint and peanuts. Serve immediately with the remaining dressing on the side.
