Prepare & toast the baguettes:
1 Prepare & toast the baguettes:

Halve the baguettes. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium until hot. Working in two batches, add the halved baguettes, cut side down. Toast 4 to 5 minutes, or until browned. Flip and toast 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned (if the pan seems dry, add a drizzle of olive oil between batches). Transfer to a work surface. Wipe out the pan.

2 Prepare the ingedients & marinate the cabbage:

While the baguettes toast, wash and dry the fresh produce. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Peel the carrots and grate on the large side of a box grater. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers; remove the cores. Quarter the peppers lengthwise, then halve crosswise. Large dice the cucumbers. Combine in a bowl; add the sliced green tops of the scallions. Cut out and discard the core of the cabbage; thinly slice the leaves. Place in a bowl. Add the sweet chili sauce and a drizzle of olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes.
