The base of this rainbow hued chopped salad is a new-to-me, homemade, red curry paste. I can’t stop using it, and it was the perfect back note to this salad situation, where every bite is a flavor explosion. The curry paste went in the dressing. Once you’ve made the dressing, blood oranges, crispy shallots, peanuts, radicchio, herbs, brown rice, scallions, and tofu are tossed with it. I’ll be honest, this isn’t the most weeknight-friendly recipe (here’s a link if you’re looking for the easiest dinners, or quick recipes in general), but it’s so good, you’ll want to give it a try at some point when you aren’t crunched for time.
I’m posting the red curry paste I used on its own page, it’s the A.P.C.P. – All-Purpose Curry Paste from Kris Yenbamroong‘s Night + Market Cookbook. If you’re inclined to make your own curry pastes, you’re going to want to take this one for a spin. I love it, and have been using it in everything lately – curry pots, this salad, spring rolls, chopped salad, etc. Enjoy!
