Israeli-Chinese Coleslaw (Americanized version)

Israeli because it was discovered by Soviet immigrant, who lives in Israel, and Chinese because of combination of soy sauce, brown sugar and olive oil.

Makes 4 servings

1 pound green cabbage, thinly sliced
1/2 cup pecans or walnuts, chopped
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup dried cranberries
7 oz. fresh white mushrooms, sliced
1 teaspoon olive oil
Salt and pepper, a bit

2 tablespoons soy sauce
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon honey or maple syrup
lemon juice, brown sugar, salt and pepper to taste

Lightly sprinkle cabbage with salt and black ground pepper and using you hands, toss and set aside.

Heat a medium frying pan, add nuts and seeds and toast for 3-5 minutes until light brown color. Take out nuts and seeds to a small plate and leave to cool. Lower the heat until medium, add mushrooms and olive oil and saute for 3-5 minutes until mushrooms are slightly wilted. Turn the heat off and leave mushrooms to cool slightly.

Make a dressing, mix all ingredients together.

Add cranberries, nut-seed mixture and mushrooms to cabbage. Pour the dressing and mix everything together. Check for spices and add if needed. Leave on a kitchen counter for 10-15 minutes and serve at room temperature. I served with meatballs and roasted peppers. 

Idea comes from Delicious Mediterranean
