Easy, Gingery, Shredded Cabbage Salad!
This is easy. Anybody can do it. You can do it with a knife, with a food processor, with a mandoline, or with a handheld slicer. It's also pretty flexible because you can substitute more or less of the vegetables you like or dislike.
Personally, I love the spicy flavor of daikon with the sweetness of carrots and the crunch of cabbage. And those are three incredibly cheap vegetables, so it makes this extra awesome.
If you're feeling like making this a meal, you can just make extra dressing and cook beef, chicken, or pork in some of the dressing. I also highly recommend the beef from the Korean Beef & Broccoli recipe.

If I won, I would get an IPad Pro for my son. He could really use one for his job when he travels. It would help him stay connected :)
