For the Salad:

  • 1 package broccoli slaw
  • 1 cup carrots, julienned
  • 1/4 cup green onions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1/2 package, 5 oz. Trader Joe's Cruciferous Crunch Collection- (if you can't find this, it's a mix of shredded kale, cabbage, brussel sprouts and broccoli, simply add what you prefer)
  • 1/2 cup whole cashews, plain or these Chili and Lime Cashews from Trader Joe's

For the Dressing:

  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup cashews
  • 2 Tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 2 limes juiced
  • 1 Tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons fish sauce
  • 1 inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and roughly chopped
  • salt, to taste
  • 1/4 cup water


  • In a large bowl toss together all the salad ingredients. Set aside.
  • Place all the ingredients for the dressing in the bowl of a food processor or blender. Process until fully combined. Taste and make any additions necessary- salt, sugar, or fish sauce (those are usually the 3 ingredients  I find myself adding).
  • Drizzle dressing over prepared salad and toss to coat.
