    About this recipe: This is definitely spicy but you can lessen the heat by leaving out the jalapeno chilli peppers. It tastes much better if you can leave the flavours to mingle for a while. Serve by itself, with meat or use as a filling for homemade spring rolls.

    Serves: 10 

    • 1 head Chinese green leaves, such as pak choy, finely shredded
    • 1 cucumber, seeded and finely shredded
    • 3 carrots, peeled and finely shredded
    • 5 Scotch bonnet chilli peppers, seeded and finely shredded
    • 5 jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped
    • 180ml cider vinegar
    • 4 tablespoons wholegrain mustard
    • 4 tablespoons soy sauce
    • 2 tablespoons agave syrup
    • pinch ground ginger
    • pinch freshly black pepper, to taste

    Prep:30min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Place the shredded pak choy or Chinese green leaves, cucumber, carrots and Scotch bonnet chilli peppers into a large salad bowl.

    Great, bold flavor! I omitted the jalapeno (I'm pregnant and can't tolerate super spicy right now) and subbed a few shakes of red pepper flakes, and I used fresh ginger because I don't have ground, and baby bok choy because it's what I had from the CSA. I used half the dressing, and that was plenty. I think the dressing really makes this salad--it's tangy and mustardy, but not overpowering. This would also be great with cabbage instead of bok choy. A definite keeper!  -  03 Oct 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Sensational dressing! I adore spicy food and this hit the spot. Spicy-hot, tangy and slightly sweet; perfect side dish, but it would be fantastic on a hamburger, burrito, soft tacos, wraps, noodle soup and more. I used cabbage and serrano peppers. Will definitely make again to share! Thanks JWM!  -  25 Apr 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
