Crunchy Cabbage Slaw

Post  Uncle Jack on Wed Jul 30, 2008 11:53 pm

Sorry no photos at this time. Next time I make a batch I'll post some . . . that is, if it lasts long enough.

Anyway; try a batch of this with your next BBQ. Yields about 14 Cups of salad.


VEGGIES & SUCH:

2/3 Cup Slivered Almonds
8 Cups (about 1 pound) coarsely shredded cabbage
12 oz Snow Peas
1 & 1/3 Cups thinly sliced Radishes
1 & 1/3 Cups thinly sliced Green Onions (include the green tops)
1 & 1/3 Cups lightly packed fresh Cilantro Leaves, rinsed

Place almonds in a cake pan and bake in oven at 350 degrees for 5 - 10 minutes. For a great flavor, the last time I smoked up a bunch of almonds over some hickory wood instead of in the oven . . . greaaaaaaaaaaaaat!

Combine all the veggies in a large mixing bowl. Leave the almonds out till you are ready to serve.

DRESSING:

3 Tbsp White Wine Vinegar
3 Tbsp Light Brown Sugar
1 Tbsp Soy Sauce
1 clove Garlic, peeled and minced
1/2 tsp Asian Sesame Oil
1/2 tsp Ground Ginger
1/4 tsp Cayenne
1 Cup Mayonnaise

In a small bowl, combine white wine vinegar, sugar, soy sauce, garlic, Asian sesame oil, ground ginger, and cayenne; stir until sugar disolves. Gradually whisk in the mayo, stirring until blended.

At least 30 minutes before you are ready to serve, add the dressing to veggie mix making sure that it gets mixed in. I like to leave mine blended over night to insure the dressing blends into the veggies. Just before serving, stir the almonds into the mix.


Enjoy, U.J.

You're right, this recipe looks really good. I've never added nuts...the almonds sound like a great addition.

Thanks for sharing! Smile

That does sound like a very good slaw recipe. I wonder how it would be with some Napa cabbage as well since it has some Asian flavours going on...

I made a batch of this today and its lovely. Thanks for the recipe.

Ok I altered it a little, I went with 50/50 red and white cabbage and used the same amount of each as I did of the other veggies. Also I chopped fresh ginger and chilli into the dressing instead of using the powders.

Its a great recipe for the different types of crunch in it. The radishes, the snow peas, the cabbage and the almonds are all crunchy in different ways which adds up to a huge crunchiness.
