For the salad:

1 medium carrot, finely sliced or grated
1 small red capsicum, finely sliced
1 tomato, finely sliced

For the dressing:
1 tbsp natural peanut butter
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp sweet chilli sauce (or use chilli sauce and add brown sugar)

1/4 cup warm water

1. Place the kale and cabbage in a large saucepan and cover with boiling water. Allow to stand for 1-2 minutes, to soften. (Optional)
2. Transfer the kale and cabbage to a large bowl, and add the remaining salad ingredients.
3. Combine the dressing ingredients in a small bowl or jug and whisk to combine.
4. Pour the dressing over the salad and mix through thoroughly with your hands. Serve immediately or keep in the fridge for up to 3 days.
