This is currently our favorite meal!

Ingredients

Dressing:
(makes 2 cups of dressing)

4 tablespoons Fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons Fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
¼ cup raw agave nectar (or honey or maple syrup)
3 tablespoons Nama Shoyu (or tamari or soy sauce)
1 tablespoon Sesame oil, cold pressed
3 cloves of garlic
1 serrano or jalapeno chile pepper (serrano is hotter than jalapeno)
1 cup raw almond butter
½ cup pure water (or more) to thin the dressing

Salad:
Somewhat equal parts of the following:

Carrots, diced very small or grated
Red Cabbage, thinly sliced
Daikon Radish, grated, sliced like matchsticks, or shaved
Bok Choy, diced
Green Onions, thinly sliced
Red Bell Pepper, diced
Cucumber, diced
Chopped Raw Cashews, optional topping

Preparation

Dressing:

Salad:
Toss all salad ingredients with a generous amount of dressing and enjoy!

The dressing is also great as a dip for veggies.  Always a big hit!
