head (small to medium) green cabbage, thinly sliced, see note

- head (small to medium) red cabbage, thinly shredded

red onion or sweet onion, coarsely chopped

cup toasted or roasted salted peanuts

3-4 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

- cup Asian ginger or Thai peanut dressing

Kosher salt and pepper, to taste

cup dry Chinese noodles, optional garnish

In a large bowl, toss the cabbage, onion, nuts and cilantro. Add dressing according to how moist or dry you like your slaw. Season with salt and pepper and toss to combine. Chill until ready to serve.

Garnish with crushed noodles, if desired.

Serves four to six.

Cook's notes: Salted, roasted cashews pieces can be used instead of peanuts. Thinly sliced jicama can also be added. This can be made with all red or all green cabbage; remove any wilted or bad leaves before shredding. Do not use any of the core or any of the thick white pieces which may be present at the end of the strips when cutting the cabbage. If strips are too long cut in half but the cabbage should not be chopped.
