Ingredients: 

FOR THE GINGER-PEANUT DRESSING

  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup vegetable or olive oil
  • 1/4 cup unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce (tamari for gluten free) 
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon natural peanut butter 
  • Heaping 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon Sriracha sauce (optional for heat)
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • Water to thin, if needed 

FOR THE CABBAGE/BROCCOLI SLAW

  • 2 cups prepared shredded red and green cabbage
  • 1 cup mixed spring greens 
  • 2 cups shredded broccoli slaw (shredded broccoli) 
  • 2 cups shredded carrots
  • 1 cup blackened corn 
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 cup cooked and shelled edamame
  • 2 medium scallions or green onions, finely sliced
  • 1/2 cup chopped salted peanuts or cashews
  • Diced avocado  
  • 1/2 dried cherries
  • 1/2 cup crunchy peas or chickpeas (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS:

  2. Combine all of the slaw ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Add the dressing and and toss well. Let the slaw sit for at least ten minutes so the slaw has a chance to soak up the dressing. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.This slaw is best served fresh but leftovers will keep in a covered container in the refrigerator for a few days. Enjoy!
