1 tbsp Grape-seed oil
3/4 cup Napa cabbage (julienned)
1/4 cup Carrots (julienned)
1/4 cup Toasted almonds
pinch Salt and pepper

For the sweet and sour sauce, combine the vinegar, agave, mirin and sambal in a small pot and bring to a boil then chill for 1 hour.

Next, add the carrots, cabbage and almonds into a medium bowl.

Next, add ¼ cup of the sweet and sour mixture into the slaw followed by the salt and pepper.
