Ginger Cilantro Slaw

slaw2There’s really nothing worse than crappy slaw. And there’s really nothing better than AMAZING slaw.

I think the key to a great slaw is fresh cabbage. Don’t try this with anything that’s been in your crisper for very long. (PS: I JUST learned that the crisper isn’t just any drawer. It’s apparently a very special and magical drawer, and not for defrosting raw dog food.)

I like my slaw to be finely textured so it’s easy to scoop with a fork, and the salad shooter is amazing for that. It makes quick work of shredding while making intact work of my fingers. (Huh?)

You can also use a mandoline or a plain ole’ knife to chop n’ shred. Your call. But the salad shooter has changed my life. This recipe took five minutes to make, and I still have all my fingers. Just sayin’.

  1. I can’t wait to try this. I’m looking for ways to incorporate more fresh ginger into my foods.
