i know you don't believe it BUT monica is back!! and here is our eighth recipe together. inspired by my recent trip to see miss sarah claire smith touring with beauty and the beast. sarah claire introduced me to raw food and although i don't think i could kick it raw permanently, i really respect the art and want to model more meals after raw principles. the next meal i will show you will be more of a real raw food meal but this is a good introduction!
sarah claire and i ate this as more of a salad but this would accompany any burger or other picnic foods really well!
monica even made hers with broccoli slaw because she didn't want to fool with cutting up cabbage! do what you like. make it yours! gear up for summer, people!
serves 4 as a side
1/2 a nappa cabbage, sliced thin
3 green onions, chopped fine
1 medium carrot, peeled or shredded
1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1/2 yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced

3 tbs apple cider vinegar
2 tbs tamari or soy sauce
1 tbs lime juice
1/4 cup peanut butter
