Salads Side Dishes

Asian Slaw

Fresh, homemade slaws are so much better than store-bought slaws, because they are crunchy and flavorful.  They are also easy to throw together, and it only takes about 15 – 20 minutes.  The inspiration for recipe comes from an Asian slaw at one of our favorite restaurants.  The cucumber adds a lot of texture.  The sesame seeds add a pop of flavor.  The tang of the vinegar mixes well with the slight spice of the sriracha and the creaminess of the mayonnaise.

This is a great side to any dish.  Give it a try!
