Shredded Salad

No, that’s not iceberg lettuce. It’s napa cabbage, and it’s part of what makes this salad pop with flavor and crunch. To turn it into a meal for four, double the dressing and toss in a pound of shredded cooked chicken or sautéed or baked tofu.


Total time to prepare: 15 minutes

2 Tbs. balsamic vinegar
2 Tbs. peanut butter
1 Tbs. reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 small clove garlic, minced
1 tsp. sugar
1 cup basil leaves
1 cup mint leaves
1 cup cilantro leaves
4 cups thinly sliced napa cabbage
1 cup grated carrot
¼ cup roasted peanuts

• In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, peanut butter, soy sauce, garlic, and sugar.
• Chop the basil, mint, and cilantro leaves and toss with the cabbage and carrot.
• Toss the salad with the dressing and garnish with the peanuts.

Serves 4.

  1. I have tried a few of these recipes including recent ones with kale and chickpeas and spinach/kale and squash. These are very healthy but have very little taste. It would be great to see some healthy and spicy recipes!
