Recipe: Asian Inspired Slaw
This is such a lovely addition to any BBQ or picnic. The veggies are packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. These ingredients can help support immune function, reduce inflammation and promote overall health. Asian-inspired slaws can be customised to include a variety of ingredients, making them a versatile side dish or main course. By incorporating lean proteins like grilled chicken, fish or tofu, you can create a satisfying and balanced meal that supports your health and wellbeing.
For the dressing
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp clear runny honey (maple syrup for vegans)
1 garlic clove crushed
1 tbsp grated fresh ginger
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 tbsp toasted sesame seed oil
2 tbsp olive oil
1-2 fresh limes (to taste)
2 handfuls fresh coriander, chopped
For the coleslaw
1/2 a medium red cabbage
1/2 a medium white cabbage
1 bag of radishes
1 small bunch of spring onions, sliced.
Put all the ingredients for the dressing into a large jar and shake to combine.
Finely shred the cabbage and either spiralise or julienne the carrots.
Finely slice the spring onions and halve the radishes.
Combine on a large platter.
Give the dressing a last shake and pour over the vegetable mix, gently stirring through to coat evenly. Take care not to mix too hard or the colours may run together.
