Kale Cashew & Mint Slaw

Kale Cashew & Mint Slaw

A few weeks ago I went out to eat at restaurant near work and had the most AH-mazing kale slaw.  It was a special and will probably not to be on the menu again (at least that's what the waiter said). How am I to resist a special kale slaw? It's my kryptonite!  My coworker and I ordered the slaw and on the first bite she realized it had garlic in it (she's allergic to garlic!).

When the waiter came back, she asked for a different salad and just when he tried to take her plate away, I called dibs on her slaw. Yeah, I totally did that. The waiter gave me a weird look, but after a few bites of my own slaw I realized that there was no way in HECK I'd let any bit of that slaw go to waste.
