1 cup grated carrots
½ cup diced or julienned bell pepper

2 Tb rice vinegar
1 Tb soy sauce
2 tsp brown sugar
½ tsp grated fresh ginger root

Dash of chili oil, Tabasco or hot pepper sauce

1/3 cup chopped peanuts, or 1 Tb toasted sesame seeds

Combine cabbage, carrots, and bell peppers in a serving bowl and set aside. In a separate bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar, soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger and chili oil. Pour the dressing over the vegetables and toss well. Set aside to marinate for 10 to 15 min. Just before serving, mix the slaw well and add the chopped nuts or toasted seeds.
