Asian Cabbage Salad

Ingredients 

2 1/2 cups finely shredded organic cabbage 

1 cup grated organic carrots

 ½ cup diced organic red/green ( red makes the salad extra beautiful) Combine and set aside.

Dressing:

2 tablespoons organic extra virgin olive oil 

2 tablespoons Rice vinegar (I used apple cider vinegar because that is what I had on hand)

2 teaspoons brown sugar (or one good squirt of honey)

1 tablespoon soy sauce (Tamari or Nama Shoyu)

 ½ teaspoon grated fresh ginger root (or ¼ teaspoon dried ginger root)

 Tabasco or pepper sauce (we use a ½  teaspoon of cayenne powder)

 Wisk together and pour over and toss well. Let sit 10 or 15 minutes before serving

 Optional 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds mixed in with dressing

Date Cake

Ingredients 

1 to 2 pounds organic Medjool dates (go organic here as dates are highly sprayed)

½ cup to 1 cup of chopped cashews

 1 cup of shredded organic coconut

Instructions 

  1. sliced open dates and remove seats. Mash by hand or use a food processor or blender. You will need to just add a little water and mash in small amounts if you use a machine. If you mash by hand just imagine working into a dough, much like Play-Dough. 
  2. Put the mash dates into a bowl or on a cutting board and add in the cashews mix in coconut if you wish. Finally, shape, sprinkle with shredded coconut, chill and enjoy! 
  3. Dark chocolate chips are good addition or carob chips.
