Asian Coleslaw

This blog is becoming more and more only about food I’ve realised…
But that’s cool ’cause what’s not to love about food right?

On that note:
Here’s a recipe out of the LEON cookbook I got for my birthday from my Dad.
Asian coleslaw // L.AlexandraI’ve made it twice and everyone loved it each time.
It’s great as a side or a starter.

For the Asian coleslaw you’ll need:
♦ 1/2 white cabbage, finely sliced
♦ 300g carrots, peeled and grated
♦ 1 red pepper, thinly sliced
♦ 250g Green beans, steamed and cut into small pieces
♦ 3 tomatoes, finely diced
Asian coleslaw // L.AlexandraI kinda just gestimated with the carrots, beans and tomatoes.

For the dressing:
♦ Limejuice
♦ Palm sugar (or brown sugar)
♦ Red chilli pepper, finely diced
♦ Garlic, finely chopped
♦ Coriander
♦ Peanuts, crushed

or you can be lazy like I was once and just use sweet chilli sauce, tastes great too!
Asian coleslaw // L.AlexandraMix all your ingredients together, I used my hands, pour over the dressing and you’re ready to go!
Or you could put it in the fridge for a bit before serving so the flavours can mingle and mix.
