Asian Cole Slaw

This salad is very quick to prepare and should be served within 2 hours before it wilts. The flavor has a strong fresh punch and the cabbage is a tender switch from the typical head of cabbage. In a large bowl combine these vegetables:

1 medium head napa cabbage, thinly sliced crosswise

1 bunch green onions, sliced thin crosswise

1 red bell pepper, cut into thin strips

In a small bowl combine:

3/4 cup fresh lime juice (no other substitute!)

1 large jalapeno pepper, finely chopped

1 teaspoon Kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 tablespoon sugar

Whisk in:

1/2 cup olive oil.

Pour dressing over vegetables and gently toss together. Cover and refrigerate. Serve within 2 hours. As an optional flavor, you could also add 1 teaspoon sesame oil and 1 tablespoon fish sauce. It is not necessary though.
