Summertime is definitely the time to recapture my love for cold salads and slaws. What is better on a hot day, than sinking your teeth into a nice cold, crisp salad that has some crunch and is completely satisfying? Ok, so maybe jumping into the pool is better than that for cooling you off, but as far as food goes.....this slaw is amazing! I think next time I will add some chicken and call this a main dish!
1 1/2 Tbsp creamy peanut butter
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 tsp salt
1 Tbsp rice vinegar
1 tsp honey
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1/4 tsp Franks Red Hot Sauce
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
1 Tbsp green onions, chopped
1 red bell pepper, cut into bite size strips or chunks
4 cups shredded cabbage
1 mango, cut into bite size chunks
1 Tbsp toasted sesame seeds
In a large bowl, stir together the peanut butter, garlic, salt, rice vinegar, honey, soy sauce and hot sauce until completely smooth. Stir in cilantro, green onions and red bell pepper. Add cabbage and mango and stir or toss, until the cabbage and mango are well coated with the dressing. Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour. Right before serving, sprinkle the top with sesame seeds.
