Ingredients

3-4 cups thinly sliced and chopped red and/or green cabbage

1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions

1/2 cup chopped mint leaves

1/2 cup chopped cilantro

1/3 cup chopped salted peanuts

1 1/2 T lime juice

1 T fish sauce

2 tsp. sweetener of your choice

1/4 – 1/2 tsp. dried red chile flakes

Directions

Stir together the lime juice, fish sauce, sweetener of your choice, and red chili flakes to make the dressing. (You might start with the smaller amount of chile flakes and taste on your finger to see if you want more heat.)Thinly slice and chop enough red and green cabbage to make 3-4 cups of sliced cabbage. Put the cabbage in medium-sized bowl and toss with the dressing. Let the cabbage marinate while you prepare the other ingredients.Slice the green onions. Wash and spin dry the mint leaves and cilantro, using a salad spinner or drying with paper towels, then chop enough to make 1/2 cup each chopped mint and cilantro. Coarsely chop peanuts with a chef’s knife.Add the green onion, chopped mint, chopped cilantro, and most of the peanuts to the cabbage and toss to combine. Serve right away, sprinkling a few peanuts on each serving of salad.
