Soup and Salads
I am always looking for a delicious Cabbage Salad. I thought what could possible be wrong with cabbage and peas and a spicy peanut dressing? Nothing….this came out delicious and I would definitely make it again.
1 head of napa cabbage, thinly shredded
1 carrot, peeled and julienned
1 cup of peas
¼ cup of fresh basil leaves
¼ cup chopped roasted cashews
2 tablespoons black sesame seeds
2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
2 tablespoons rice-wine vinegar
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon honey or brown sugar
½ teaspoon siracha
1 clove garlic, finely minced
1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
2 tablespoons water
For the Salad
For the Dressing
Combine cabbage, carrots, peas, avocado, half of the herbs, and half of the cashews in a large bowl; do not include sesame seeds.
Whisk together all the ingredients for the dressing in a separate bowl, adding more water to thin if necessary.
Toss the cabbage mixture with the peanut sauce and top with the reserved herbs, cashews, and the sesame seeds.
