I am not much of a cole slaw person. I don’t like all that runny mayo….sweet yuckiness. But I do however, love asian slaw. It’s light, crunchy and goes well as a side dish, or on a sandwhich or you can add some chicken and it’s a meal. It is just crunchy goodness and easy to put together. I hope you will try it.
1/2 head of cabbage (red or white or both) sliced thin
1/2 head of napa (or chinese) cabbage sliced thin
3 green oninons, sliced up
1 cup shelled edamame beans
2 cups fresh bean sprouts
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1 cucumber, sliced
toss everything together in a large bowl. Pour in some Asian dressing, chill and enjoy! That simple!!
1/2 cup orange juice
juice of 2 lemons or limes
2 tablespoons of FRESH grated ginger (NOT GINGER POWDER USED FOR BAKING)
2 cloves of minced garlic
3/4 cup of vegetable oil
2 tablespoons of peanut butter (optional) but delicious
2 tablespoons of soy sauce
1 tsp of chili paste (if you like spicy) I do!!!
put everything in a food processor or blender.. add salt to taste. ready to go.
