Low-Carb Spicy Cilantro-Peanut Slaw

Low-Carb Spicy Cilantro-Peanut Slaw
  • Meal


  • Cusine



1/2 large head green cabbage, finely chopped

1/2 cup peanuts, chopped

1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions

1 bunch cilantro, chopped

salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste

2 T rice vinegar

1 T sweetener of your choice

2 tsp. sesame oil

2 tsp. soy sauce

2 tsp. Sriracha sauce

1/4 cup vegetable or peanut oil


Cut cabbage head in half and save half for another salad. Remove core from the half you’re using, then cut cabbage into very thin slices (less than 1/4 inch. Turn cutting board the other direction and cut again to chop into very small pieces. Thinly slice green onions, chop cilantro, and chop peanuts. In a bowl or glass measuring cup, mix together rice vinegar, sweetener of your choice, sesame oil, soy sauce, and Sriracha sauce if using. Use a whisk to mix in oil until dressing is well-combined. In large plastic or glass bowl, gently combine chopped cabbage, sliced green onions, and chopped cilantro. Add dressing 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.
