“Super Slaw”

Filed under: Uncategorized — jenseyt @ 4:23 pm

another epicurious recipe (Bon Apetit, July 1998)

  • 6 T rice vinegar
  • 6 T vegetable oil
  • 5 T creamy peanut butter
  • 3 T soy sauce
  • 3 T packed brown sugar
  • 2 T minced peeled fresh ginger
  • 1 1/2 T minced garlic
  • 5 C thinly sliced green cabbage
  • 2 C thinly sliced red cabbage
  • 2 large red or yellow bell peppers, cut into matchstick-size strips
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and cut into matchstick-size strips
  • 8 large green onions, cut into matchstick-size strips
  • 1/2 C chopped fresh cilantro
  1. Whisk first 7 ingredients in small bowl to blend. (Dressing can be made 1 day ahead; cover and chill and then let stand at room temperature 30 minutes before continuing.)
  2. Toss sliced cabbage and 1 T salt and put in a mesh strainer set over a medium bowl.  Let stand until cabbage wilts–at least 1 hour or up to 4 hours.  Rinse cabbage under cold running water.  Press, but do not squeeze, to drain, and pat dry with paper towels.  Place wilted cabbage and carrot in large bowl.
  3. Combine remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Add dressing and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
