  • 2 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce or tamari if gluten free
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/2 inch fresh ginger grated
  • 3 cloves garlic minced

  • 1 large red bell pepper sliced
  • cup chopped cabbage
  • 1/2 cup  shredded carrots
  • 1/4 cup toasted cashews
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro coarsely chopped
  • sesame seeds for garnish

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the cashew butter, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, lime juice, ginger and garlic for the salad dressing. Add water, a little at a time, and continue whisking until desired consistency is reached.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the arugula, zucchini noodles, bell pepper, cabbage, carrots, cashews and cilantro. Drizzle with dressing and toss to coast. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve immediately.
