Any excuse to make Thai peanut dressing. Thai Coleslaw is a tasty salad that works well as a side dish or on it's own. Note the optional sriracha or sambal oelek if you'd like a little heat. I left it out because I served it with Firecracker Tofu.
6 cups shredded cabbage
2 carrots, peeled and shredded
1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
4 scallions, sliced
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1/4 peanuts, chopped(garnish)

1. In a large bowl, toss together cabbage, carrots, red pepper, scallions and cilantro.
