Fresh ginger 
Soy sauce (or tamari for gluten-free option)

Prepare the rice noodles according to package instructions and set aside. 
Layer the base of a salad jar or serving dish with rice noodles and spiralized zucchini. 
Add sliced carrots, red cabbage, sprouts, peppers, and bok choy in colorful layers. 

For the dressing
In a separate container, prepare the dressing by combining lime juice, peanut butter, garlic, ginger, soy sauce, maple syrup, rice vinegar, and sriracha.
Shake or blend until smooth. 
Drizzle the dressing over the salad and toss gently to coat. 
Top the salad with a generous handful of peanuts for added crunch. 
Optionally, garnish with edible flowers for a decorative touch. 
If preparing for school or work, pack the dressing separately and add just before serving to avoid sogginess. 

Add cooked chicken or sliced beef for extra protein. 
Experiment with additional ingredients like baby corn or mung beans for variety. 
Customize the dressing by adjusting the amount of sriracha for desired spiciness.
