I had a cabbage that I had to use so I thought I’d come up with different slaw. Here’s Sriracha Ginger Apple Slaw! It’s very easy to prepare and taste great! I think most people will like it. It’s not too spicy and it’s not too sweet. It’s light and refreshing.
Ingredients for around 8 servings
1 medium green cabbage – shredded very thinly (don’t used bagged)
2 medium carrots – peeled and shredded
1/2 medium sweet onion – shredded very thinly
1/3 cup radishes – shredded
1 honey crisp apple (it will get shredded but do that at the end)
1 garlic clove – ground to paste
1/4 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon kosher salt
1 1/2 Tablespoons minced ginger
1 Tablespoon dijon mustard
1 Tablespoon honey
2 Tablespoons canola oil
2 teaspoons Sriracha – or to taste because different brands will differ
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1 Tablespoon cilantro chopped
1 Tablespoon parsley chopped
Put the cabbage, sugar and kosher salt in a large mixing bowl. Mix well and transfer to a colander that sits over a large bowl and let sit on the counter about 1/2 hour. Water will come out of the cabbage. Throw out the liquid and put the cabbage back in the large bowl.
Add the carrots, onion, radishes to the large bowl and set to the side.
In a small bowl add the dijon, honey, Sriracha and ground garlic and mix well. While mixing slowly add the oil and mix well. Slowly mix in the apple cider and mix well. Add the minced ginger and black pepper. Mix well.
Shred the apple and add it to the large bowl with cabbage. Mix in the dressing and lastly add the parsley and cilantro.
It’s ready to serve on a sandwich or on the side or wrapped with protein in rice paper.
