Soba and Slaw Salad with Peanut Dressing

Lee Harrelson
Yield 4 servings (serving size: 2 1/2 cups salad, 1 tablespoon onions, and 1 1/2 teaspoons peanuts)
Total time: 40 minutes. Look for soba noodles, rice vinegar, chile paste, and soy sauce in the specialty-foods aisle of your supermarket or in Asian markets. Use packaged slaw mix in place of the red cabbage and carrot if you're in a hurry. Try this recipe with coarsely chopped rotisserie chicken instead of shrimp.

Ingredients

  • 6 cups shredded red cabbage
  • 2 cups grated carrot
  • 3/4 cup thinly sliced green onions, divided
  • 1/2 pound coarsely chopped cooked shrimp
  • 3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 2 teaspoons Thai chile paste with garlic
  • 2 tablespoons chopped dry-roasted peanuts
