Red Slaw
INGREDIENTS
  • 1/3c Rice Wine vinegar
  • 1/3c Soy sauce
  • 1/8c Lemon juice
  • 1/3-1/2c Brown sugar (I us DARK and MORE of it, coz I like it sweet)
  • 2-3tblsp Walnut or Sesame oil (walnut will give you a much stronger flavor)
  • 2tsp Ginger
  • 1tsp Chinese 5-Spice
  • 1 sm head Red cabbage, shredded
  • 2 med Granny Smith apples, diced
  • 1c Cashews or Peanuts- your choice- halves or pieces
  • 2-3 green onions, sliced julienne
DIRECTIONS
  1. Whisk together briskly first 7 ingredients for dressing, ensuring sugar and spices dissolve and blend.
  2. Toss veggies, fruit and nuts together in large bowl. Pour dressing over and toss well to coat.
  3. Serving tips: I like the taste better after it's sat in the frig for a day, BUT- it's prettier if you serve within a couple of hours BECAUSE the cabbage will eventually stain the other ingredients purple.
  4. I serve this w/Fish Tacos (see my recipe for MahiMahi Wraps)!
RECIPE BACKSTORY
I call it "red", well, coz it's made of red cabbage... BUT- one could very well use Napa or Chinese and call it "Asian", because that's really kinda what it is...
