This has to be the easiest, yet tastiest slaw I've ever encountered! Not only does it look like a fiesta in a bowl, the tangy-sweet flavors of the dressing compliment perfectly the cool, crisp vegetable combination -- the perfect side for summer BBQ's or to answer that age-old question... "What should I bring??" for the next potluck!
1Hand chop/slice or use a food processor and prepare the cabbage, red onion, bell peppers, carrots, and cilantro (and of course, being creative and adding other veggies is allowed - I think I actually also added some chopped celery I had on hand). Place in a large bowl and combine.
2In a saucepan, combine the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil, then cook while stirring for 1 minute. Allow to cool just slightly.
3Combine the dressing with the vegetables and mix well. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Stir again before serving. (and check for saltiness...I added a bit more by way of a crunchy finishing salt before serving...yum!)
