Chard Salad with Peanut Dressing

Chard Salad with Peanut Dressing
Ingredients for salad:
1 bunch chard
2 carrots
1 bell pepper, color of your choice
1 scallion
Ingredients for dressing:
1/2 cup vegetable or canola oil
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup unsalted peanuts
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
Salt and pepper
Take the chard and separate leaves from the center ribs. Slice very thinly in a chiffonade fashion. Peel the carrots of their outer skin. Then take your peeler and slice the carrot as much as you can, creating very thin carrot strips. Slice the bell pepper very thinly with a knife. Slice the scallion normally, down the entire stalk. Combine all ingredients in a large salad bowl.
To make the dressing, combine the oil, apple cider vinegar, 1/4 cup of the peanuts, brown sugar, salt and pepper in a food processor or blender. Blend everything together until it is a smooth liquid. Top the salad with the dressing. Garnish with reserved 1/4 cup peanuts and serve.
