Bell Pepper and Apricot Slaw with creamy Ginger Dressing

I’m always on the lookout for good recipies, especially salads, and when I saw this one in the newspaper, I really wanted to try it.  I modified it some, of course – I almost always have to tweak a recipe for our (my) taste.  And this one turned out wonderfully!  The combination of dried apricots and the ginger dressing makes this one a real keeper.

Bell Pepper and Dried Apricot Slaw with Creamy Ginger Dressing


  • Salad:
    1 red bell pepper
    1 green bell pepper
    1 red onion
    1/2 small red cabbage
    12 – 15 dried apricots
    baby spinach
  • Dressing:
    2 T  rice vinegar
    1 T soy sauce
    1/4 C apricot nectar
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1 1/2 inch fresh ginger, chopped fine
    1 T cilantro, minced
    1 6 oz carton plain non-fat greek yogurt

Cut bell peppers and apricots into strips, slice onion, and shred cabbage.  Mix together in a large bowl.  Mix dressing ingredients together in a small bowl, and add to salad.  Toss to mix, and refrigerate for several hours.  Serve on baby spinach.

After working all of my life, I retired in June, 2011. I try to use my extra time to rest, exercise, paint my fingernails, play with my 9 cats, spend time with my husband, Al, and cook healthy and lower fat recipies for us to eat. I try to use as many fruits and vegetables in my menus as I can cram in, sometimes to the complaints of the hubs - LOL! I am also making over some of my old favorites to be heathier with more vegetables in them, and less fat.
