Really an outstanding thai slaw, with few modifications on the second go to suit our tastes. I used more vinegar and honey, and fish sauce instead of soy. The basil on top was ok, but mint and coriander would go well, too. Handful of peanuts topped it off nicely. Happy now.
Made this as a side dish with grilled salmon and topped it with sunflower seeds for added crunch as I didn't have any sesame seeds. They put it over the top. DS raved about it and even the guests who "didn't like coleslaw" ate three helpings.
This was outstanding! I made a couple of changes and substitutions: I used white vinegar instead of rice vinegar, used 1 T. sesame oil and 1 T canola oil, and added 1 t ginger paste. I also used chopped cilantro instead of basil. The flavor was so good and I'll be making this again soon. The family loved it as well. Very nice addition to grilled meats.
Love Love this recipe. Light & refreshing with great flavour. The fresh basil is a must. The only thing I added was a handful of peanuts on top for some more crunch. I know I will making this all summer long. Delish!
I only made the dressing and added some melted peanut butter and a shot of fish sauce. Super fast, super easy, many uses. I'll come again to make the whole salad.
Thanks for posting this. I remembered it from RR's 30 Minute Meals, but couldn't find it on the Food Network website. I like making this for potlucks.
I too used more vinegar and honey, and fish sauce instead of soy. The basil on top was ok, but mint and coriander would go well, too. sunflower seeds on top.
Made this slaw for our family vacation. Mixed it all together several hours before serving to allow it to blend. Very tasty and nice combination of vegetables. Used much less cayenne in the dressing. Looked beautiful too. Thanks for posting.
This slaw is so easy and so tasty. I've made it at least weekly since we first tried it a couple weeks ago, and it's always a hit. Instead of sesame seeds, I added crushed peanuts and it tastes amazing. You can also add whatever veggies that are sitting in the fridge you want to get rid of: broccoli, carrots, etc. I always make extra because we end up going back for seconds, it's so good!
Loved this salad. So refreshing.
