Asian Cabbage Salad with Warm Spicy Peanut Dressing is a special dish because it combines the freshness of cabbage with the warmth of a spicy peanut dressing. The result is a salad that is both flavorful and healthy.



Spicy Peanut Dressing Ingredients:

½ c. all-natural peanut butter

3 T. rice vinegar

1 T. sesame oil

2 t. sriracha sauce

Sea salt and black pepper, to taste

3 T. tamari or coconut aminos

T. honey, preferably local

2 T. fresh lime juice

1 T. fresh ginger, finely minced

1-2 cloves garlic, finely minced

¼ c. liquid from Mandarin oranges

Salad Ingredients:

4 c. green cabbage, shredded

2 c. red cabbage, shredded

2 large carrots, shredded

1 medium red bell pepper, sliced thin

2 green onions (green parts only), sliced

¼ c. fresh cilantro leaves, chopped

Sea salt and black pepper, to taste

¼ c. toasted peanuts, chopped

1 10-oz. can sugar-free Mandarin oranges (packed in juice)

1 T. white sesame seeds


1. To make the dressing, combine the peanut butter, vinegar, sesame oil, and sriracha

sauce in a medium skillet over medium heat. Season with salt and black pepper, to

taste, and heat, stirring continually, until the peanut butter melts and the ingredients

are thoroughly combined, approximately 2-3 minutes.

2. Reduce heat to low and whisk in remaining dressing ingredients until combined.

Simmer, stirring occasionally, until heated through, approximately 2 minutes.

Remove from heat and set aside. Keep warm.

3. Combine shredded green cabbage, red cabbage, carrots, bell pepper, green onion,

and fresh cilantro in a large bowl. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and

drizzle with a small amount of the warm peanut dressing. Toss to combine.

4. Transfer salad to a decorative serving platter and top with chopped peanuts,

Mandarin oranges, and sesame seeds. Serve immediately with remaining peanut

dressing on the side. Enjoy!
