Notes

Made with absolutely no oil or mayonnaise, this tangy-spicy-crunchy-herby slaw will jolt your taste buds with its spice. It’s fantastic served with stir-fried beef, chicken, or shrimp, or with grilled foods.

Ingredients

  • A ¾-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated
  • Juice of ½ lime
  • 1½ teaspoons citrus vinegar or white wine vinegar
  • 1½ tablespoons sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon chaat masala
  • ¼ teaspoon toasted cumin (see Notes)
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground peppercorns
  • 9 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 jalapeno (seeded and veined for less heat), finely chopped (optional)
  • 1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
  • ¼ cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh mint leaves
  • ½ head (1¼ pounds) green cabbage, halved, cored, and finely sliced
  • ¼ cup chopped roasted peanuts

Directions

Whisk the ginger, lime juice, vinegar, sugar, chaat masala, toasted cumin, cayenne pepper, salt, and ground pepper together in a large bowl. Add the scallions, jalapeño, tomatoes, cilantro, and mint leaves and toss to combine. Add the cabbage and toss with your hands, making sure to coat it thoroughly with the other ingredients. The salad can be covered with plastic wrap and refrigerated for up to 4 hours at this point. Just before serving, sprinkle with the chopped peanuts.
