August, that time of year when turning on the oven to cook dinner sounds miserable. This quick and easy slaw utilizes the blender attachment for a zesty peanut and cilantro dressing and the slicer/grater attachment for vegetable prep on napa and red cabbage, carrots and snap peas. Add some cooked chicken from the deli, top with some roasted peanuts and fresh cilantro, and dinner is done!
When the summer heat is intense, we break out the slicer/grater attachment for no cook salads and slaws that can easily be bulked up with your protein of choice for quick lunches and dinners without heating up the kitchen.
Summer is in full swing and gardens are ripe with produce. Like many of you, we have an OVER-abundance of squash and zucchini and I am forever trying to figure out creative ways to use them. I stumbled across this idea several years ago and my family has grown to love my zucchini pepperoni. Let’s face it, squash and zucchini really don’t have a distinct flavor by themself, so being able to doctor them up is super easy. With the right spice combination, I’ve been able to create a pepperoni taste that is sure to wow even the biggest meat lover.
