asian coleslaw with peanuts and chilli

This came off a Riverford veg box card many moons ago.

1/2 cabbage, finely shredded
3 carrots, coarsely grated2 apples, grated
red pepper, thinly sliced
chopped tomato
2 tbsp roasted, crushed peanuts

for the dressing:
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/2 onion, finely sliced
1 chilli, chopped
3 tsp fish sauce
1.5 tbsp brown sugar (this is far too much, in my view)
3 tbsp lemon juice
dash of sweet chilli sauce

Combine the dressing ingredients together, either in a pestle and mortar, or whisked together in a bowl. Set aside.

Toss with the dressing, and pile on a serving plate. Sprinkle with the peanuts.
