Rookie-Cookie: Spicy Cilantro Peanut Slaw

August 17, 2009

srirachaMade this for the first time today and it was a hit! The Sriracha sauce (hot sauce) gave it a fantastic kick. If you don’t like cilantro – this is not the recipe for you.

Thank you Rookie Cookie for this fantastic recipe!

1/2 large head green cabbage, very finely chopped
1/2 cup peanuts, chopped
1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
1 bunch cilantro, chopped
Kosher salt and ground pepper

For the dressing:
2 Tbsp rice vinegar
1 Tbsp honey
2 tsp sesame oil
2 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp Sriracha sauce
1/4 cup canola or peanut oil

In a large bowl, combine the cabbage, green onions and cilantro. Toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper.

In a bowl or liquid measuring cup, mix together rice vinegar, honey, sesame oil, soy sauce, and Sriracha sauce, if using. Use a whisk to mix in oil until dressing is well-combined.

Add dressing to the cabbage mixture a little at a time, until salad seems as wet as you’d like it. You may not need all the dressing. Add chopped peanuts, and stir a few times until peanuts are mixed in. Taste salad for seasoning, and add salt and freshly ground black pepper as desired. Serve immediately.
