1 Prepare the ingredients & make the dressing

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the radishes lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Cut off and discard the ends of the bok choy; thinly slice, separating the leaves and stems. Halve the cucumber lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Roughly chop the peanuts. Halve the lime crosswise. In a bowl, combine the sliced radishes, sliced bok choy stems, and mirin; season with salt and pepper. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. In a separate, large bowl, whisk together the peanut butter spread, honey, sesame dressing, the juice of both lime halves, and 2 teaspoons of water. Pick the mint leaves off the stems.
