Loved this fresh new taste! I did not have the chili sauce and I left out the honey, but I added ground red pepper (hot) to the dressing and honey roasted peanuts to the slaw instead. I think I added more sesame oil to the dressing, because I love the taste. Had some frozen basil and some fresh cilantro--excellent addition to cabbages. This makes a huge batch--perfect for potlucks. If I had chow mein noodles, I think those would be a nice crunch too.
This is sooo flavorful and so easy to make. You can use a coleslaw mix from the grocery, but I like mixing it myself because I love napa cabbage and it's not included in a pre-mixed slaw mix. I like the idea of adding peanuts to the slaw and since I had plenty on hand - that's just what I did. This is great for a bbq or any family get-together. Made for ZWT9.
We loved this slaw! This was a refreshing change from my normal vinaigrette or yogurt sauce to avoid mayo. I might double the fresh herbs in the future. For ZWT9
