Make a Different (and Nutritious) Salad for the 4th or Your Picnic: Arugula Slaw with Peanuts

Okay, this recipe sounds weird, but it's really, really good. It may even make coleslaw devotees out of non-slaw eaters. With a light lime vinaigrette, the bite of the cabbage is considerably contained. You get sweetness from the cabbage instead and a slight bitterness from the arugula. Coarsely ground peanuts add a bit of nubby crunch and extra flavor. This is a simple salad to pull together, it's super nutritious, and it keeps well in the refrigerator. Enjoy!
