Who would think healthy could taste so good. Bright in flavor and looks! Crispy! If you want a thicker dressing add 1 more tablespoon peanut butter. Great for a light lunch or a side to a main meal.
- 1 cup red cabbage, sliced very thinly
- 6 snow pea pods, quickly blanched then cut into matchsticks
- 1 cucumber, cut into matchsticks
- 1 red pepper, cut in matchsticks
- 1 shallots, sliced very thinly or 1 scallion, sliced into matchsticks
- 1 stalk celery, sliced into matchsticks
- 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
- 1 slice ginger (quarter size piece)
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 teaspoon soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon peanut butter
- 1⁄3 cup rice vinegar
- 1⁄3 cup light olive oil
- 1⁄2 teaspoon sugar
- 1 pinch red pepper flakes
- salt and pepper
- 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds
- Put all salad ingredients into a bowl.
- Into a blender add all of the dressing ingredients and blend till creamy smooth.
- It will be on the thin side.
- If not using rice vinegar use less of what you do use because I find rice vinegar is milder.
- Add to salad and toss to coat,chill till ready to serve final toss& then top with seeds and serve.
I liked this very much - the dressing flavour combo is a favourite of mine. I felt the amount of oil was pretty high, which is about the only thing I would change. And well, I did....I cut back on the oil and the vinegar by about 1/3 - and that was fine because I was missing some of the veg this salad called for anyway. This is one of the best ways to enjoy raw cabbage - thanks Rita!
Let's start with the good - visually a beautiful salad. Followed the directions exactly as written and didn't like it at all. The two people I shared it with did not like it either. Flavors were just off.
I made this tonight for my lunches this week. It is delicious! I subbed organic almond butter instead of the peanut butter and it worked out wonderfully. Thank you!!
