Kitty's Asian Slaw

Today, for World Wednesday I am featuring a recipe created by my mom, which has recently become a favorite of hers.  This recipe tastes fresh, crisp, and is aromatic of sesame seeds, making it both refreshing and savory.

Kitty's Asian Slaw
1/3 c fresh apple juice
1 T honey
1/4 c rice vinegar
1 1/2 T sesame oil
1 t minced fresh ginger, more to taste
2 t soy sauce

4 c green cabbage, thinly sliced
2 c red cabbage, thinly sliced
2/3 c green onions, thinly sliced
3/4 c thawed frozen green peas
1 large red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1/2 c roasted unsalted peanuts
1/2 to 1 cucumber, sliced and quartered
2 T sesame seeds

Directions: Whisk dressing ingredients in a medium sized bowl.  Mix cabbage and remaining ingredients in a large bowl, except sesame seeds.  Toss slaw with dressing to coat well.  Sprinkle sesame seeds on top for a great serving look.

Amy's Notes: For this recipe I used frozen sliced peppers because red bell peppers were an outrageous price at my grocery store.  Also, this recipe contains more oil (sesame) than I would normally use in a recipe, however, this makes several servings and the sesame oil really makes a difference in the flavor of the dish.  To make the oil spread a little farther, add an additional cup or two of sliced red or green cabbage, the sauce will stretch that far easily.  I ate it as a cold salad only, but I'm planning on having it with on top of steamed brown rice and some leftover Thai Peanut Sauce for a heartier meal.  Enjoy!

Thanks mom for the recipe!
