SPICY CILANTRO PEANUT SLAW



SALAD
1/2 large head cabbage, core removed
1/2 c. or more chopped peanuts
1/2 c. thinly sliced green onions
1/2 c. or more cilantro, chopped
salt & pepper (optional)

DRESSING
2 T. rice vinegar
1 T. sweetener (sugar, honey, agave nectar, etc.)
2 t. sesame oil
2 t. soy sauce
1 t. sriracha  sauce
1/4 c. canola or peanut oil

Cut cabbage half into 1/4-inch or smaller slices, then spin 90 degrees and cut 1/4-inch slices in the opposite direction until it's all finely chopped. Combine cabbage, peanuts, onions, and cilantro in serving bowl.

In a small bowl or jar, combine all dressing ingredients. Shake or stir until combined. Drizzle a little dressing over the salad at a time, stirring to disperse evenly, until the salad is as coated as you'd like it or just leave the dressing on the table so that people can dress their own portions. Serve immediately if you dressed the whole dish.

Notes: The name says this is spicy, but it's not ... and that's coming from someone with a low tolerance for spicy stuff.
