This Asian slaw salad, tho
Sometimes you’re just in the mood for a fresh and filling salad that doesn’t taste like… salad.
This dish is something you’ll be excited to eat. It’s flavorful and complex, yet simple to prepare.
This asian flavor inspired “slaw” is incredibly simple and easy to modify.
There’s some important main ingredients (ie- red cabbage) but you can pretty much free-style it from there and it will be great.
We throw together this salad (or something like it) weekly.
