Thai Coleslaw

Aaron and I went to Chicago over the weekend and had a great time seeing my friends from college, going to the beach, and going out a lot. When we got home I was happy to get back into my salads for lunch diet!

I made this really delicious coleslaw for lunch this week (cabbage was on sale at Whole Foods).

It is a Thai coleslaw, but I didn't make it spicy, although the recipe called for red pepper flakes I left them out.

I found the recipe on Kayln's Kitchen. Check it out, a lot of our favorite recipes have come from her website!

These are the main ingredients:
4 cups shredded cabbage
1/4 cup sliced green onions
1/2 cup diced mint
1/2 cup diced cilantro
1/3 to 1/2 cup chopped peanuts

Dressing (whisk together):
1 tbs Fish sauce (don't be scared, this dressing is fabulous)
2 tsps Honey (well the original recipe calls for Stevia but I had honey)
1.5 tbs Lime Juice

Mix the cabbage with the dressing first and let it sit while you chop up the other ingredients, then mix it all together and top your serving with some extra chopped peanuts.

This coleslaw tastes way better than I thought it would, especially after I nervously added the tablespoon of stinky fish sauce to the dressing. It was worth buying the out of season mint and I will definitely be making this again soon.
