ingredients

For the jalapeño-cilantro dressing

1 jalapeño, seeded and cut into quarters

1⁄4 cup chopped cilantro

3 tablespoons lime juice

3 tablespoons rice vinegar

2 teaspoons agave or your favorite liquid sweetener

1⁄4 cup olive oil

For the salad

1 small head napa cabbage, cut into thin strips (about 6 cups)

3 cups sliced spinach

3 carrots, cut into 2-inch matchsticks (about 2 cups)

1⁄2 cucumber, cut into 2-inch matchsticks (about 2 cups)

3 cups radish* matchsticks (2-inch-long)

2 cups jicama matchsticks (2-inch-long)

1⁄4 teaspoon salt

1⁄4 cup minced chives or green onions

*Watermelon radish or the regular kind

First, make the dressing: Pulse the jalapeño and cilantro until finely chopped. Add the lime juice, vinegar, and agave then blend it again real quick. With the machine running, slowly drizzle in the olive oil until the dressing is thick, about 15 seconds. Set it aside for a minute.

Make the salad: Combine all the veggies in a large bowl, then toss in the dressing. Fold in the salt and chives. Serve right away or let it chill in the fridge for 30. Best eaten within 2 hours of dressing.

This recipe comes to Khoollect exclusively from the Thug Kitchen cookbook Thug Kitchen 101.

‘Not quite a slaw, not quite a salad, but all-around explosive flavor. People might ask you for the recipe, but you can tell them to f**k off so you can keep this your signature salad. Whoever said “you don’t make friends with salad” clearly never f**ked with this.’
