Asian citrus cole slaw.
Now, this isn’t your grandma’s traditional cole slaw. Those generally have too much vinegar or mayonnaise in them for my taste, which make them too soggy. This cole slaw is more of a salad with its larger pieces, crispy texture and light and citrus-y taste. And while it goes nicely with Asian dishes or eaten alone as a snack, I think it would also be delicious sitting next to a yummy boca burger or veggie dog, too. Plus, it’s super easy to make, can be whipped up in no time and doesn’t require a food processor!
To begin, chop up green and purple cabbage (maybe half of each head) into slightly longer than bite-size chunks and strips. Set this aside in a mixing bowl. Next, finely chop cilantro and peanuts and add them to the top of your cabbage mixture. Then, in another bowl, mix up the dressing. The dressing consists of the juice of one whole lime, about 1-2 teaspoons of yellow mustard, one teaspoon of cumin (one of our new favorite spices), a splash of honey and a sprinkling of black pepper. Stir this up and pour it over your cabbage. Then, you can stir or cover and shake all of this together until well mixed.
This can now be eaten right away or stored and chilled until ready to devour! Hope you enjoy!
