  • Cuisine: Pan-Asian

Ingredients

Scale

Dressing:

  • ½ cup mayonnaise (I used low fat)
  • 1 Tablespoon Fish Sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons Seasoned Rice Vinegar
  • ⅛ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon granulated garlic powder

Slaw:

  • ½ pound brussels sprouts
  • 1 medium carrot
  • ¼ red onion
  • Small handful cilantro (about ¼ cup)
  • 23 pieces candied orange slices
  • 3 Tablespoons roasted coconut chips
  • 3 Tablespoons pine nuts

Instructions

Make the dressing:

  1. Combine the mayonnaise, fish sauce, seasoned rice vinegar, ground black pepper, and granulated garlic in a small container.
  2. Whisk to combine and set aside.

Make the salad:

  1. Trim the brussels sprouts at the base and peel off a couple of the outer leaves. Slice the brussels sprouts as thinly as you can and place them into a colander. Wash the brussels sprouts and drain thoroughly. Set aside in a large bowl.
  2. Peel and trim the carrot. Slice thin and then stack the slices and cut through them to create thin strips (julienne cut). Put them into the colander and wash and rinse. Drain and put the carrots into the bowl with the sprouts.
  3. Peel the onion and then thinly slice. Again wash the onions and drain thoroughly. Place them into the bowl with the other vegetables.
  4. Toss the salad ingredients in the bowl so everything is nicely mixed.
  5. Roughly chop the cilantro.
  6. Slice the candied orange into thin strips and then cut through the strips to create a very fine dice. Set the oranges aside.
  7. Pour half of the dressing over the brussels sprouts and toss to coat. The dressing is strong so you may not need all of the dressing. Taste the slaw and add more dressing as needed.
  8. Mound the slaw onto a plate and garnish with the oranges, cilantro, pine nuts, and coconut chips.

Notes

*You can substitute any kind of crunchy coconut and nut/seed trail mix, clusters, or topping instead of using the coconut chips and the pine nuts.

*If you have problems sourcing the orange slices, try something with an orange flavor such as orange flavored dried cranberries.
