Yield: 4-5 servings
Shredded Cabbage... 2 cups
Carrots (sliced thin)...2
Tomatoes (sliced thin)...2
Bell pepper (sliced thin)...1
Red onion (sliced thin)... to taste
Cucumbers (sliced thin)...3 small ones
Coriander leaves...3 tbsp.
Low sodium soy sauce....1.5 tbsp.
Red chilli sauce...1/2 tbsp.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil...1 tbsp.
Honey...2 tbsp. (to taste)
Roasted peanuts (peeled and coarse my ground)...2 tbsp.
Red chilli flakes..to taste
Garlic (crushed)...1 tsp. or 2 cloves
Ginger (crushed)...1/2 tsp. or 1/2 inch piece
Fresh Lime juice...from 1/2 lime (you can substitute with tamarind juice as well)
Let's start by taking 2 tablespoons of roasted peanuts. We are going to transfer these to a ziploc bag and break these up into smaller pieces by using a rolling pin.
Next, let's get our veggies ready! I am using two cups of finely shredded cabbage, two medium sized carrots (sliced thin), 3 small cucumbers (sliced thin), 2 tomatoes (sliced thin), one bell pepper (sliced thin), some red onion sliced thin, and two to three tablespoons of fresh coriander leaves.
Now let's work on a super flavorful dressing! We are going to combine one and a half tablespoons of low sodium soy sauce, (if you're using high sodium approximately half a tablespoon should be enough).
To this add half a tablespoon of red chili sauce, one tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil, one and a half tablespoons of honey, fresh juice from half a lime, one teaspoon of crushed garlic, and half a teaspoon of crushed ginger.
Give that a good mix!
Add the dressing to the salad and coat well.
If you want it a little more hot sprinkle some red chili flakes
Next, add approximately half of the roasted peanuts
Now let's give the salad a good mix so the dressing coats all the veggies
Now let's give it a taste and sprinkle some salt if needed
Finally garnish with the remaining peanuts and your salad is ready!
Hope you enjoyed this recipe!
