Cole slaw transformed - with Krab/crab, green onion, tomato and a spicy, crunchy peanut topping. Can be made the day before and served as a main or side dish. Prep time does not include refrigeration.

Top Review by PalatablePastime

This slaw has a really nice, mellow flavor with the surimi bits in it. The dressing is nicely balanced. The peanuts are a nice idea but are a little too sugary and oily without enough spice. The flavors didn't come through on those like I hoped for. But overall, a nice dish!
