Thai-Style Chicken Coleslaw

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Tisme

Found this recipe in the paper. Great if you have left over chicken. Makes for a great light meal or lunch, with wonderful flavours. I have used both green and red cabbage for this recipe and both work well, although I do cut down on the corriander as it is not a favourite of this family. I found the pickled ginger in an Asian supermarket, but have since noticed a few deli's and supermarket's also sell it.

This was delicious. I used palm sugar instead of honey and a mixture of Asian mint and regular mint along with the fresh coriander. This makes a lot yummy dressing so I served it over chilled noodles to soak it all up and make it a more substantional meal for dinner tonight.
