BANDERA COLE SLAW

1/2 head green cabbage, sliced in thin strips

1/4 head purple cabbage, sliced in thin strips

1/2 jicama sliced, in thin strips

2 green onions, finely chopped

1/4 cup fresh cilantro or parsley, coarsely chopped (depending on your preference)

1/4 to 1/2 cup roasted peanuts

Mix all above ingredients then add the vinaigrette below

FOR THE VINAIGRETTE:

Add the following ingredients to a small food processor (Cuisinart Mini-Prep) and grind it up. Try to let sit in the refrigerator for at least one hour.

1/2 cup oil [I use a
mild olive oil such as (NOT EVOO) or even Avocado oil]*

1/4 cup peanut butter or peanut flour*

DO NOT ADD SESAME OIL

Juice of 1/2 lime or 1/4 lemon (Lime is preferred*)

2 tablespoons rice vinegar

1/2 teaspoon fresh minced ginger

1 tablespoon sugar

1 green onion

1/4 cup chopped cilantro or parsley, depending on your preference

1/2 teaspoon salt

You can of course vary any of the above ingredients according to personal preference, I also really didn’t measure accurately. My wife said this was as close as you can get without going there.

Costco rocks! The Mayo

RECIPE: French Meadow Vinaigrette

A basic vinaigrette as told to me by French Meadow restaurant

This is hard to mess up because it’s so simple. I asked for the list of ingredients in the restaurant because the salad was so delicious. I attribute it to the while balsamic and the simplicity.

White or Golden Balsamic vinegar

Garlic flavored olive oil (Trader Joe’s in a slender bottle)

Fresh cracked pepper

Salt

Baby greens

Good with a diced hard cooked egg or some soft, crumbled goat’s cheese

Mix the salad well with the dressing ingredients to get the leaves coated, compacted and slightly wilted.
