Asian Inspired Cole Slaw Recipe
Hi Everyone, having a huge amount of cole slaw on hand has been one of my go-to meal planning methods lately. It lasts well in the fridge and I can reinvent it in different meals, for example, it can be used as a side dish, on a sandwich, in a soup, in a bowl with other ingredients – you name it!
This recipe makes a nice large amount which is great for entertaining or meal planning.

I love making cole slaw recipes in the Winter time because it has a crunchy texture and fresh flavors but it’s well-suited for Spring and Summer-time too.
