Cilantro Peanut Slaw

This recipe is based on something delicious I saw on a friend's plate at a southern California restaurant. Take care to sliver the cabbage as thin as you can; it makes a difference.

1 1/2 Tbsp unseasoned rice vinegar
1 Tbsp honey
2 tsp toasted sesame oil
2 tsp soy sauce
4 drops lime oil (optional)
1 tsp chili-garlic paste
1 Tbsp canola oil

liberal grindings of freshly cracked black pepper
1/2 small head green cabbage, very finely slivered
1/4 small head red cabbage, very finely slivered
1 carrot, peeled and grated
1/2 bunch (1/2 to 2/3 cup) scallions, very thinly sliced
1/2 large bunch (1/2 to 3/4 cup) cilantro, minced
1 cup peanuts or cashews, chopped

Stir together vinegar, honey, sesame oil, soy sauce, lime oil, chili-garlic paste and pepper until thoroughly incorporated. Stir in canola oil, whisking to combine. Set aside.

Toss together cabbages, scallions, carrots and cilantro. Add nuts. Toss with dressing and serve.
