Sweet and Spicy Thai Salad
I always love to bring something just a little different when I am invited to a party.
The way I feel about food is the same way women feel about clothes—you never want to be caught wearing the same thing as someone and you want attention. I am an attention hog when it comes to my food. I love hearing their surprise and exclamations.
So, I am going to let you in on my little secret recipe, but I better never see you at a party I am attending—DEAL! You will get a lot of attention when your friends take a bite out of this exotic Sweet and Spicy Thai Salad.
This salad has a little of everything—the sweet from the pineapple, the spicy from the chilis, and the crunch from the cabbage and almonds. This is a sure fire way to get attention at your next get together.

- Salt and Pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients in serving bowl and whisk.

Add all the veggies to large mixing bowl and toss. Garnish with slivered almonds.By Krissy Stark—cooking enthusiast and advisor for a baby clothes boutique.
