    1. Place the cabbage and carrot into a large bowl. Pour in the lime juice, rice vinegar, fish sauce, sesame oil, honey and peanuts. Stir until well blended. If using a bowl with a lid, put the lid on and shake thoroughly. Taste, and season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate for a few hours, stirring or shaking occasionally, to allow the flavours to blend before serving.

    I'm not usually a fan of sweet salads but this one was pretty good. Still, next time I think I halve the honey, replacing the missing half with an equal amount of soy sauce, to reduce the sweetness and increase the "Asianness" of the flavor.  -  19 Oct 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Wow! I've already made this 3 times, and just got the recipe less than 2 weeks ago! Family wiped out whole bowl the first night, and asked I make again for the next night! Very easy - once you have those ingredients on hand, it is so fast to make. I took a whole jar of peanuts and chopped them (food processor) and put them back in the jar to keep handy! I put a little Cilantro in too one time, and that was tasty too! A great dish!  -  03 Jul 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    THis was good. I cut back on the honey, added sesame seeds instead of peanuts like one reviewer suggested, and I added a bit of ginger. I will be making this again.  -  11 Nov 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
