HOW TO MAKE ASIAN SLAW AT HOME
The preparation of this slaw is really quite simple, and so much of it can be done in advance.
The ingredients are loaded with flavor and nutrients.
Get them all prepped before assembly.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT CABBAGE
Choosing the right cabbage for Asian Slaw may seem daunting, but just go with what’s available at your market.
We love going with Napa Cabbage and a beautiful Red Cabbage (even though it’s more purple in appearance.
The dressing has a wonderful peanut flavor to it, that is perfect.
And another great thing is that the dressing can be made up to several days in advance.
Just let come back to room temperature (if making in advance) and then whisk to mix it all together again!
ASSEMBLING THE SLAW
You can easily make the dressing up to 2 days ahead of serving.
Cut the veggies up and keep in large air-tight containers. Within an hour of serving, place the veggies in a bowl, and then dress, tossing well.
Keep in a cool place until ready to serve. Give it one more toss, and you’re set!
