Ingredients

Peanut dressing

  • 1 small clove garlic, peeled
  • 2-inch piece fresh ginger, cut into eight pieces (peeling unnecessary)
  • 1/3 cup unsalted, nonhydrogenated peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 Tbs. low-sodium tamari
  • 2 tsp. packed light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar

Red cabbage slaw

  • 1 8-oz. pkg. Oriental-style baked tofu, cut into 1/2-inch dice
  • 6 cups shredded red cabbage
  • 1 medium-sized carrot, peeled and grated
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions

Preparation

To make Peanut Dressing: Place garlic and ginger in mini-chopper beaker, and pulse until finely chopped. Add peanut butter, tamari, brown sugar, vinegar and 1/4 cup water, and blend until smooth. Thin with 1 Tbs. of water or more, if necessary, so that dressing is pourable.

To make Red Cabbage Slaw: Combine all ingredients. Pour dressing over salad, and toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and serve.
