Stir Fried Cabbage & Thai Peanut Sauce

The first day of summer means quicker, easier recipes. I usually make all of my salad toppings from scratch, but this jar of pre-made sauce was too irresistable to pass up. It is Watcharee’s® Thai Peanut Sauce and the flavor is fresh, tangy and gourmet style. It’s also Gluten Free and Vegan!  

Cherry Jubilee Cake for Father’s Day
