Asian Slaw with Roasted Peanuts

The vegetables in this salad soak up the rich flavors of its ginger dressing. Since preshredded red cabbage isn't readily available at most supermarkets, we used a chef's knife to thinly shred it. Preshredded white cabbage can be substituted for the red, if you prefer.
