For the Spicy Peanut Dressing

  • 1/4 cup natural peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons sriracha sauce
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger finely minced
  • 1-2 cloves garlic finely minced

For the Salad

  • 4 cup green cabbage shredded
  • 2 cup red cabbage shredded
  • 2 large carrots shredded
  • 1 medium red bell pepper sliced thin
  • 2 green onions green parts only, sliced
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves chopped
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup toasted peanuts chopped
  • 10 ounces no sugar added mandarin oranges drained


  • To make the dressing, combine the peanut butter, vinegar, sesame oil, and sriracha sauce in a medium skillet over medium heat. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and heat, stirring continually, until the peanut butter melts and the ingredients are thoroughly combined, approximately 2-3 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to low and whisk in remaining dressing ingredients until combined. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until heated through, approximately 2 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside. Keep warm.
  • Combine shredded green cabbage, red cabbage, carrots, bell pepper, green onion, and fresh cilantro in a large bowl. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and drizzle with a small amount of the warm peanut dressing. Toss to combine.
  • Transfer salad to a decorative serving platter and top with chopped peanuts, Mandarin oranges, and sesame seeds. Serve immediately with remaining peanut dressing on the side.
