Asian Inspired Coleslaw & Ginger-Sesame Dressing


Being from Canada I live for bbq and patio season. Most traditional barbeque meals include a variety of salads, with coleslaw being an oldy but goodie. I find this salad light and with the right dressing can be flavorsome. I tinkered with this one to get the right amount of ingredients so it would not be too peanuty, or too gingery. In the end I think the balance between the ingredients works well.

Ginger Dressing

6 T rice wine vinegar
3 T olive oil
1 T peanut butter
2 T soy sauce
3 T brown sugar
2 T minced fresh ginger
2 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp hot sauce
salt and pepper

Coleslaw

8 cups of shredded (red and green)
1 red bell pepper sliced thinly
2 carrots julienned
6 green onions, chopped
1/2 cucumber, diced
1/2 cup cilantro
1 apple shredded (optional)

Use either a pre-shredded cabbage or using a sharp nice finely chop 8 cups of cabbage. Cut the remaining vegetables and put together in a bowl and mix.

Whisk together the ingredients for the dressing and pour some over the salad and toss. Serve immediately.

I recently made a slaw very similar and it was the best I had ever made! I still have half a cabbage in the fridge...hmmmmm...

I've been really craving cabbage and this salad looks perfect and refreshing for summer! Though the weather here isn't very summery right now (rain and dark skies).

I did make the coleslaw and it tastes even better than it looks...hard to do. I posted a menu and naturally gave you credit and a link...http://onceuponafeast.blogspot.com/2008/06/short-ribs-coleslaw-asian-style.html

I actually found a bag of broccoli coleslaw mix in my grocery store - delish. If you find some, you have to try it.

Thanks again for sharing a great dish.
