This simple salad is always a crowd-pleaser. In the off chance there are leftovers, it’s even better enjoyed the following day (or two!).

  • 3 to 4 cups cabbage, shredded or finely chopped
  • 1 large fennel bulb, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup Cilantro Mint Sauce*
  • 1 teaspoon powdered or granulated garlic
  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup Thai-spiced cashews, chopped (use plain roasted if unavailable)

Combine all ingredients in large salad bowl, then let the spices blend for at least 30 minutes before serving. Even better when left to marinate, store this crunchy salad in the fridge for up to 3 days.
