This needed more vinegar which I added and freshed grated ginger went into this slaw. I used Thai basil which I grew. And used honey yummy good. Crisp and delish!

Great dressing! I have made this about 5 times now, always missing basil or green onions and is still great. I have added peanuts for an extra crunch. Thanks for the recipe.

Very good! I used green cabbage, purple cabbage, red pepper, carrots and scallions. I had to leave out the cucumber, used dried basil, and forgot the sesame seeds. This was very pretty and has a great Asian flavor. DH suggested that if I were to dice the veggies very fine, and add some basmati rice, it could be really good rolled in seaweed like sushi. I'll have to give that a try!
