In the mean time, here's a recipe I actually picked up at Trader Joes. For those of you who've never stepped foot into a T.J.'s (poor souls!), they have a corner in their store where they always have some product you can test. Yesterday they made this cabbage salad to test out their Asian-style Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette. It was surprisingly tasty. I'm not a fan of peanuts. I like Thai peanut sauce with noodles, but thats about it...no peanuts, no peanut butter, no peanut butter cookies. These went great with TJ's Coconut Curry Chicken Stix (they're like Asian taquitos). This is a semi-homemade recipe...nothing much to it, but its tasty. I think it tastes best when you let it sit a little bit so the cabbage and carrots can soak up the dressing and soften up a bit.
- Shredded cabbage
- Shredded carrots
- Salted blister peanuts (I don't like peanuts, so I left this out...cashews might work too)
- Seedless raisins (or I used craisins...dried cherries would work too)
- Asian-Style Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette (from Trader Joes...I'm sure there is an equivilant at your nearest grocery or Asian food store)
