- 1 head green cabbage, shredded
- 1/2 head red cabbage, shredded
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 1/2 cup rice wine vinegar
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons sesame oil
- 1/2 teaspoon chile paste
- 3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
- 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
- 2 carrots, shredded
- 1 cup bean sprouts
- 4 scallions, julienned on the bias
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- 2 tablespoons sesame seeds, for garnish
Toss the cabbage together in a large colander and set in the sink. Sprinkle the cabbage with salt and let stand for 15 minutes. The salt draws out some of its moisture so that the slaw remains crunchy.
In a bowl, whisk together the vinegar, soy sauce, oil, chile paste, peanut butter, and ginger. Toss together with the cabbage, carrots, bean sprouts and scallions; season with salt and pepper. Garnish with sesame seeds before serving.

1 cup kalamata olives - pitted

1/4 parmean cheese
pinch red pepper flakes
1/4 to 1/2 cup olive oil

1 box frozen puff pastry
Here is a sweet recipe that sounds super yummy. Courtsey of My Recipes
2 egg yolks
1 tablespoon water
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
1 (17.3-ounce) package frozen puff pastry sheets, thawed
1/2 cup finely chopped roasted pistachios
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
Whisk together egg yolks and water in a small bowl.
Combine sugar, cinnamon, and cardamom.
Carefully roll each sheet of puff pastry into a 9 1/2" square on a lightly floured work surface. Brush each sheet with egg wash, and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons sugar mixture. Sprinkle chopped pistachios evenly over 1 sheet, leaving a 1/4" border; top with remaining sheet, sugared side down. Firmly press edges to seal. Brush top of pastry with melted butter; sprinkle with remaining sugar mixture. Cut pastry into 3/4"-thick strips, using a pizza cutter. Twist each strip 3 times, and place 2" apart on lightly greased baking sheets.
Bake at 400° for 19 minutes or until golden. Remove from pans immediately, and cool on wire racks.
Note: To reheat pastry twists, bake at 450° for 5 minutes or just until heated. Cool. (As they cool, they crisp up.)
