“Refreshing change from supermarket coleslaw! Suit yourself: more sauce, more or less of each vegetable! Cashews or toasted soy work, too.”

My husband LOVED this. I did a couple of things differently. I didn't have a Jalapeno so I used Sambal in the dressing for the heat. I also finely minced the ginger and added that to the dressing instead of to the cabbage. To be honest I didn't really measure the peanut butter - just a big scoop, the dressing is nice and thick and clings to the vegetables well. Thanks for a great recipe!

The flavor was excellent. Don't skimp on the sugar, it needs it. When I first tossed the slaw with the dressing I tasted it and it was out of this world delicious. Then I let it sit for an hour as the recipe called for and ended up with asian slaw soup. It was a sloppy, soggy mess that was not very appetizing. If I make this again and I probably will I will serve it right after I combine everything. UPDATE: I made this again last night and realized what probably went wrong for me. Last time I made this I julienned all the vegies and probably dressed the salad too much. This time I coarsley chopped everything and watched the amount of dressing I used and no more soupy slaw! I even let it sit for about 30 minutes and it was perfect. Tasty recipe!



Really, REALLY yummy! I used a bag of coleslaw mix (yes, I'm lazy), and green onions in place of the regular. Oh, also, I microplaned the ginger, and just combined it in w/ the dressing ingredients. LOVED the different textures and the bit of heat from the jalapeno. Great flavor...I will def be making this again! Thanks for sharing. :)
