Southeast Asian Cabbage and Shrimp Salad

Fresh mint adds a cooling effect in this peppery salad. For a spicier dish, keep the seeds in the jalapeño peppers. Use steamed, boiled, or grilled shrimp.

1/2 cup fresh lime juice (about 6 limes)
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 cup water
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons minced seeded jalapeño pepper
2 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh mint
1 1/2 tablespoons fish sauce
1 garlic clove, minced

6 cups thinly sliced Napa cabbage
1 1/2 cups shredded carrot
1 1/2 cups loosely packed fresh mint leaves
1 cup vertically sliced red onion
1 1/2 pounds medium shrimp, cooked and peeled
1 English cucumber, halved lengthwise and sliced (about 1 1/2 cups)
6 tablespoons chopped unsalted, dry-roasted peanuts
Mint sprigs (optional)

To prepare dressing, combine first 8 ingredients, stirring with a whisk until sugar dissolves.
To prepare salad, combine cabbage and next 5 ingredients (through cucumber) in a large bowl. Drizzle dressing over salad, and toss well to coat. Sprinkle with peanuts; garnish with mint sprigs, if desired. Serve immediately.

Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 2 cups salad and 1 tablespoon peanuts)

serve with soluble fiber of course.

IBS-A for 20 years with terrible bloating and gas. On the diet since April 2004. Remember this from Heather's information pages:
"You absolutely must eat insoluble fiber foods, and as much as safely possible, but within the IBS dietary guidelines. Treat insoluble fiber foods with suitable caution, and you'll be able to enjoy a wide variety of them, in very healthy quantities, without problem." Please eat IF foods!
