It's asparagus time here and I am glad that this recipe was created. It's nice and fresh. used soy sauce and fresh basil. Found that one teaspoon sesame oil was enough, otherwise the taste would have been too strong. I halved the recipe, otherwise it would have been too much for us. The leftovers were nice but I would not recommend to save it for more than two days, the asparagus gets too wilted. Thanks for creating and posting. Made for Raiders of the Lost Pantry Contest.
My dh & I really enjoyed this tasty coleslaw, especially all the vegetables and cilantro/mint combo. We love thai food and thought that this was awesome. I made 1/2 batch exactly as written and 1/2 batch without the peanut butter for my dh (allergies). Both versions were terrific. I opted to use fish sauce instead of the soya sauce and was really happy that I did. The slaws were garnished differently one with sesame and cucumber and the other with cilantro and peanuts. Nice use of contest ingredients. Good Luck in the contest.
I was surprised how much I enjoyed this slaw. A nice change from my usual dressings. Thanks!
I really wanted to love this coleslaw, as who can resist peanut sauce? And I was intrigued by the use of dill pickles. The salad was lovely - I used a mix of red and green cabbage. The dressing was pretty good, too, but the dill pickles were a bit too pronounced for me, in spite using less than the recipe called for. I thought they distracted from the Thai flavor, and were a bit too sour for the rest of the ingredients. I will definitely make this again, but will leave out the dill pickles and the peas. Thanks for your creativity and the base for a really good Thai coleslaw!
