This is pretty good! I love a vinegar slaw as the mayo ones tend to be so sweet and/or heavy. That said, I wished for more vinegar flavor here and so will probably increase that ingredient next time. I definitely did not drain the marinating liquid (and nobody saw me try it with a spoon, either!!). I loved the inclusion of cucumbers in this, and the sesame seeds are a very nice touch. I think the sweet/salty ratio is spot on in the liquid as well. Thanks for posting! Made for my adopted chef for PAC Spring 2011.
RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
I joined this site back in 2007 when it was Recipezaar. I cook 90% of my own food from scratch, and have lost 40 pounds so doing. I buy most of my summertime/fall veggies from farmers' markets, don't eat much gluten or grains -- but if I am dining with friends, I do eat what I am served, except for tree nuts, commercial baked goods from supermarkets or chains (I react badly to these), and I tend to avoid sweets. Yes, you can train yourself to appreciate sweets far less! I grow some of my own food, but this is limited due to lack of full sun. I also enjoy seafood (brain food!), eggs, and some pastured meats. I'm getting more into fermented foods. Sensitivities: All the tree nuts I actually LIKE. Sigh. Fiddlehead ferns. Liquid egg product. Most commercially baked pastries and donuts and cakes.
