Easy Vegan Red Cabbage Salad with Spicy Peanut Sauce

 

Here’s another super easy, super fresh salad to add to your routine. This is almost a slaw, I think it would be really good as a side dish for just about anything. I actually ate it for lunch by itself so whatever you like.

Ingredients

Red Cabbage– shredded (about 1/2 a head)

Carrots– shredded (about 1 cup)

Cilantro– one bunch, stems removed and chopped

Green Onions– 3-4 chopped

Sesame seeds– 1 1/2 Tablespoons

Cashews– about 1/4 cup finely chopped

Mix all these together in a medium sized bowl.

Now for the Sauce

In a separate bowl combine

the following…

Peanut or almond butter (about 2 Tablespoons)

3-4 Tablespoons Braggs Aminos (or other soy sauce)

Crushed red pepper flakes (amount depends on your preference for heat)

A dash of lemon juice

A dash (or more) cayenne pepper

Use a whisk to mix it all well, I added some water to thin the sauce down a bit.

Add the sauce to the vegetables and your done. It’s quick, easy, and super fresh. You could definitely add some shredded zucchini or other vegetables. You could also use a different sauce for a completely different flavor. A lemon, vinegar dressing with some garlic might be tasty.

Give it a try, let me know what you think.

Feed your body, fuel your life!

    Sounds good. I think I may use fresh chopped jalapenos in place of the red pepper flake.
