My new found love for my mandolin has been put into practise this week. This winter veg salad is a great starter or side dish to a warming slow cooked stew. This would also make a great lunch, you could add in a little cooked chicken or some crispy pancetta. 

It is sinfully easy, all you need are fantastic chopping skills or a mandolin (don't forget one of these though if you have bought a mandolin) 

To serve 4...

1 red cabbage
1 red onion 
6 spring onions 
2 red peppers 
2 chillies 
5tbsp of almond butter
1 tbsp of sweet soy sauce 
1tbsp of hoisin sauce 
2 tbsp of water
1/2 cup of chopped peanuts (unsalted) 
sprinkling of black sesame seeds

Slice up all veg and put to one side. 

Now make your dressing. 

Place your almond butter, sweet soy and hoisin sauces into a jug and mix well, add in the water and mix well, add a little more water if needed (you want the dressing to be the consistency of cream) 

Now assemble your salad, do this however you like, I started with the red cabbage and red onions,  then red pepper, spring onions and chillies, all topped off with the sticky satay dressing and sprinkled with black sesames.
