Thai Chickpea Salad with Curry Coconut Dressing

A beautiful, plant-based take on our go-to summer salad!

We love sharing our favorite, unexpected Kokada recipes, but to be honest, our team is quite busy. Although we love a good baking challenge or multi-ingredient dinner, we also love our quick, convenient, and satisfying recipes.

This one was inspired by our cofounder's love of all things Thai, a good Thai chicken salad being one of them! This version uses Kokada as a natural sweetener in the dressing, adding a little sweet coconuttiness to our favorite salad. It's a true showcase of Kokada Classic's versatility!

Throw this refined sugar free salad together when you're in a hurry or try this as an easy meal prepped lunch!
