Asian Salad

I buy cabbage every week. It is cheap, versatile and I love it. Today I chopped a head of cabbage and grated 3 gigantic carrots and chopped a whole red onion. I made a peanut sauce in the blender: natural peanut butter, apple-cider vinegar, salt, sugar, 3 fresh garlic cloves, a knob of fresh ginger, toasted sesame oil, and rooster brand hot sauce. I buzzed it all in the blender and taste-tested it. I poured it over the cabbage mixture and added some sweetened shredded cocoanut flakes. Delicious!

Tomorrow its going to be crazy HOT (85 degrees F) so this will be a refreshing cold salad. I boiled some multi-grain noodle twists to have with this.
