Asian Slaw with Salty and Sweet Peanut Soy Dressing


I found this recipe on Serious Eats and liked it quite a lot.


For the dressing:

Note that because this dressing contains raw garlic, it must be kept refrigerated and must be used within four days due to the risk of botulism.

For the Slaw


Mix all the dressing ingredients and whisk to dissolve the peanut butter. Taste and adjust seasoning if desired, but bear in mind the flavor will be diluted once spread on the slaw.

Combine all the cole slaw ingredients.

At this point, everything can sit in the fridge until a bit before you want to eat it. (If you want this to last more than a day, just dress the slaw a bit at a time.)

Dress the salad as desired and let sit for at least 10 minutes for the vegetables to soak up the flavor of the slaw and for the cabbage to soften. Taste and adjust seasoning if desired.
