I hate coleslaw...but didn't mind this. It grew on me as the night went on..lol. My only changes, not as much cilantro cuz dh does not like..but think it would have been better if I had. And I used Franks hot sauce rather than tabasco. Very different and will be using to go w/my polynesian or asian themed meals.
I don't like slaw but this was great. The peanut butter gives it that great asain flavor. Will make again.
This was delicious, and wonderful change from the traditional cole slaw. Thanks!
