This side dish is a perfect accompaniment to any meal but it was especially tasty with last night's salmon.
It takes about 10 seconds to whip together (OK, maybe I exaggerate a little here) and 1 cup of the dressing has only 70 calories. Add it to a store bought coleslaw mix and you're completely good to go and healthy too!
ASIAN PEANUT SLAW
1/2 cup rice wine vinegar
3 tablespoons peanut butter (I used a natural, chunky variety)
1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon dark brown sugar
salt and pepper to taste
1 bag coleslaw mix
chopped cilantro for garnish (if desired)
-In a mason jar (or other vessel with a tight fitting lid), add the first 7 ingredients and with the lid on tight, shake well to blend all the ingredients.
-Add the slaw to a large bowl, season with salt and pepper.
-Pour the dressing over the coleslaw and mix well to coat all the slaw with the dressing (I think tongs work best for this).
-Refrigerate until ready to serve.
-Top with the chopped cilantro and serve alongside your favorite protein.
Come back hungry, won't you?
