  • 1 cup of edamame beans (shelled and cooked)

  • Handful of coriander chopped

Dressing:

  • 4 tbsp of rice/sushi vinegar
  • 1 tbsp of a neutral flavoured oil e.g. extra virgin canola
  • 2 tbsp runny honey
  • 1 tbsp reduced salt soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsbp smooth peanut butter
  • 1 chilli finely chopped (more if you like it hot)
  • 1 clove of crushed garlic

 

 

How to make it:

1) Mix the cabbage, carrot, capsicum, spring onions, peanuts and coriander together in a large bowl

2) To make the dressing simply mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl or put them into a

clean jam jar and shake thoroughly until the peanut butter is completely mixed in.

3) Pour the dressing over the salad and stir through

 

Serve it up:

– Perfect to enjoy with grilled or shredded chicken, tofu or fish.

– Add an extra sprinkle of nuts if you like!

 

Adapt it:

– You can use white wine vinegar if you don’t have sushi/rice vinegar

– If you want to take to work the next day, don’t add dressing to the whole mixture, you are best to add that just before you serve it.
