Asian Slaw

How to make Asian Slaw

           The Coleslaw is a well known side, that is commonly found at cookouts and also served as an ingredient for barbecue sandwiches. Think of this Asian slaw, as a spicier cousin of the coleslaw. Crunchy vegetables & the chilled dressing makes it perfect for the summer. It makes a great side for any meal; especially so, for an Asian theme platter. I was quite tempted to try this recipe, when I saw it on The Washington Post and this has since been a regular in my kitchen, on many occasions. Sharing this crunchy recipe with my fellow bloggers at Sri Valli's CCChallenge.
