1 red bell pepper, cut in thin strips 

1 small red onion, cut in thin strips 

1 carrot, julienned

5 green onions, cut into one inch lengths 

1 tablespoon chopped Italian parsley 

1 teaspoon thyme leaves

Ingredients for dressing:

3/4 cup rice vinegar 

3 tablespoons honey or agave nectar 

1 teaspoon dry mustard 

1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger  


  • Mix all the slaw ingredients together in a large salad bowl.
  • Mix the dressing ingredients together.
  • Pour the dressing over the slaw and toss.
  • Refrigerate slaw for two hours to allow the flavors to blend.
