Use the mint, the mint makes this! It's a great recipe, with interesting flavours and texture, and a huge change from ordinary coleslaw (which I happen to love). Left-overs were not nice though, so make it to use it at once. Thanks Sharlene.
I only had raw peanuts so I blended it into a paste with all the seasonings and then stirfried it a bit. I tossed in the cabbage, put an extra squeeze of lime and few dashes of salt. With a drizzel of sesame oil (no peanut oil). It was so good, I ended up throwing all my cabbage in. Will be eating this all week.
This was scrumptious! I made it like a salad, chopped not shredded the vegetables, and did not have any red cabbage, so omitted that, but did add some chopped Bib lettuce that I had. I also used Vietnamese chili paste without garlic. I doubled the dressing, and marinated chicken breasts in part of it for several hours, grilled them, and chopped and added to the salad. A wonderful, light summer main dish meal! TIP: use the mint and cilantro, the flavor is superb! I will definitely make this frequently, thanks for the recipe!
A really good slaw, and leftovers are very nice on a turkey or chicken sandwich.
I made this and loved it. I used Vietnamese Chili Garlic sauce instead of paste and doubled the dressing ingredients because I like it a little saucy. It was a great tasting healthy lunch all week. I may try to add some lump crab or clams to give it some protein. Easy to make, tastes great.
Hate mint - skipped the mint. Loved the slaw. After a taste test I decided to add another T of peanut butter and a little honey to the dressing. There could be a fight over the leftovers.
This was very tasty. Definitely use the mint. For the "chili paste with garlic" ingredient, I just minced together a jalepeno, a serrano chili, and two garlic cloves (I like my food spicy).
