Asian Inspired Slaw with Wasabi Peas and Miso Dressing

Oh my goodness, sometimes I even impress myself. I have to say that this is one of the best dinner salads I’ve come up with in awhile and a breath of fresh air to my temporary vegan state…and I love the word “slaw”…which makes it that much better…

Salad Ingredients:
1 large or 2 small heads romaine, finely chopped
2 carrots, shredded
1 shallot, finely sliced
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
1/2 cup wasabi peas
1/2 cup edamame

Dressing Ingredients:
1/4 cup sweet white miso
1 avocado
2 Tbsp soy sauce (I like coconut aminos)
1 tsp fresh ginger, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
juice of 1 lemon
1 Tbsp Trader Joe’s Chili Pepper Sauce

Blend dressing ingredients well and mix into salad until everything is creamy and smells like heaven.

Tonight I made CCK’s Chocolate Chip Blondies…and managed to forget the Chocolate Chips…a blonde joke seemed appropriate at the moment (how I hated those as a kid!) but thankfully the only one around was Britney who is too sweet to bother with such things and went to work taking pictures and eating blondies I had stuffed with chocolate chips after I realized my mistake!

Ten days in to the CCK challenge and I thought I would share with you the favorites so far. The votes are in (all two of them) and these are the winners, go check them out!

Question. Am I alone in my love of weird words? “Slaw” has been the most fantastic thing to come my way in recent days so I’ll be using it as much as possible for my own amusement. Previous loves have included “scamper”, “smattering”, “twitterpated”, and my favorite word of all time…”fish” (I know…I’m the only one.).

  1. Rande I think you’d rather enjoy many of the Aussie words then…very random and fun indeed…albeit nonsensical. Also a good word ;)

  2. Firstly: freakin’ yumz. B: I love the word ‘chiuaua’. Funnest word to say in the history of everything! Xx
