Hello all– I was excited when I came across this recipe– so many of my favorite flavors tumbled into one crunchy, bright, cheerful bowl of slaw!! I’m a cole slaw fan– but add in peanuts, honey, sweet chili sauce and cilantro– better yet!
OK, is can see you’re saying–”too many exclamation points!” But try and maybe you’ll exclaim as well. It really is a scrumptious addition to any summer meal!!
THAI COLE SLAW WITH GINGER PEANUT DRESSING
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup rice vinegar
1 tab. soy sauce
2 tab. peanut butter
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. Thai sweet chili sauce*
1 tsp. ground ginger**
2 cloves garlic, minced fine
Add all ingredients into a container with a tight fitting lid and shake, shake until it’s all well blended.
4 cups cabbage, shredded
1 cup carrot, peeled & grated
1/2 cup red bell pepper, cut to tiny bright bits
1 cup edamame
2 green onions, green parts, chopped
1/2 cup peanuts, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
Add together all the ingredients for the cole slaw and pour over the dressing. Mix to coat it all well. Set it into the fridge until your ready to eat. Then stir it up again for get all that dressing that’s settled to the bottom and eat up!
*The recipe I worked from called for 1 tsp. of Siriacha sauce– but that’s a little too much heat for wimpy me. I like this sweet chili sauce a lot.
** You can used fresh ginger if you have it on hand (I didn’t).
