Sweet Vegetable Slaw

by Amie on January 25, 2010

This is an incredible recipe that I created last night using ingredients from my refrigerator and pantry.  I opted for a unique combination of cashew butter, balsamic vinegar, agave nectar, Greek plain yogurt, pine nuts, Chinese mustard, cinnamon and dulse flakes gently tossed among a ‘slew’ of spiraled zucchini, squash, mango, carrots and cabbage with my Joyce Chen Spiralizer…This sweet n’ savory slaw will have your taste buds dancin’ at your first bite.


Ingredients

  • 1 cup shredded red cabbage
  • 1 mango, peeled and diced
  • 1 zucchini, shredded
  • 1 yellow squash, shredded
  • 1 cup green beans, cut in half
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1/3 cup shredded carrots
  • 4 Fresh basil leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. Chinese mustard
  • 1 cup Greek plain yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp. agave nectar
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts, crushed
  • 1 Tbsp. cashew butter
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp. dulse flakes
  • Sea salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

  • Using the Joyce Chen Spiralizer, spiral all vegetables.
  • In a large bowl, combine the first eight ingredients.  Gently toss.
  • In a separate small bowl, whisk together the following nine ingredients.  Transfer mixture to a small saucepan and heat over medium heat for 3-4 minutes; stirring frequently.
  • Remove from heat and slowly pour over vegetable and fruit mixture.  Gently toss.
  • Serve warm or chilled.
  • Enjoy!
