Asian Style Fruit Slaw

Servings: 6-8
A great side dish at a summer barbecue, this tangy fruit slaw can also be easily adapted to a main course by adding a few boneless chicken breasts, grilled and sliced thin.

For the Dressing:
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup seasoned rice vinegar
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, finely minced
1 tablespoon soy sauce

For the Slaw:
1 medium head Napa cabbage*, sliced thin
1 cup red cabbage, sliced thin
3 plums or 2 peaches or nectarines, rinsed and sliced into thin wedges
1/2 cup cashews, roughly chopped or broken
1/3 cup cilantro, chopped
1/4 cup candied ginger, slivered fine

* Also known as Chinese cabbage.

Assemble the dressing by placing all ingredients in a small bowl; whisk to combine. For the slaw, place all ingredients in a large bowl and toss with dressing to combine.

Makes 6-8 servings (as a side dish).
