Equipment

  • Chef knife
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Mason jar with lid

Ingredients
 

Slaw

  • 2 cups green cabbage, shredded ($0.32)
  • 2 cups purple cabbage, shredded ($0.32)
  • 1 large carrot, julienned ($0.20)
  • 1 whole red bell pepper, julienned ($0.82)
  • ¼ medium red onion, diced ($0.06)
  • 1 cup edamame beans, thawed ($0.46)

Dressing

  • 3 tbsp any neutral oil ($0.36)
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil ($0.13)
  • 3 tbsp rice wine vinegar ($0.33)
  • 1 tbsp lime juice ($0.12)
  • 1 tbsp liquid aminos ($0.18)
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup ($0.29)
  • 1 tbsp ginger, finely minced ($0.03)
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced ($0.03)
  • 1 tsp sambal oelek ($0.02)
  • Sea salt & pepper to taste ($0.02)

Garnishes optional

  • Toasted peanuts or cashews
  • Toasted sesame seeds
  • Chopped cilantro
  • Mandarin slices

Instructions
 

Slaw

  • To start, shred the cabbage into a large mixing bowl. Next, julienne the carrots and bell pepper, and add them to the same bowl.
  • Throw in the diced red onion and thawed edamame beans to the bowl as well. Mix slaw around, then set the bowl aside.

Dressing

  • First, finely mince the ginger and garlic (you can use a garlic press if you have one). Add them both to a mason jar or container. Mix in the rest of the ingredients, put the lid on, and shake everything well to incorporate the oil.
  • Taste dressing, and adjust the flavor to your liking. Add lime juice or rice vinegar for more tang, more sesame oil for a toasty flavor, maple syrup for sweetness, or ginger and garlic for more punch.
  • Add sesame ginger dressing to the slaw and toss together. Serve this salad with toasted peanuts or cashews, mandarin slices, toasted sesame seeds, and chopped cilantro.

Notes

  • Optional ingredients are not reflected in the price of the recipe.
  • We usually use avocado oil, but feel free to use whatever oil you like!
  • If you aren't planning on eating the whole slaw immediately, keep the dressing and slaw separate.
