    I have family that just flew in from Hawaii for a few weeks and am smoking a couple butts right now for pulled pork tonight. And Thursday I want to bbq a tri-tip which I use a teriyaki and ginger marinade. So I would like to make some Asian cole slaw to go with it. I'm sure with all the experts out there somebody has a killer recipe.

    Here is a recipe that is fairly close to what I use (I use the regular cabbage instead of the Napa cabbage) and subsitute the white wine vinegar with apple cider vinegar)

    Asian Cole Slaw
    • 5 cups Chinese or napa cabbage (1-1/4 pounds), thinly sliced and ribs removed
    • 3 medium carrots, shredded
    • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
    • 1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro
    • 1/3 cup white wine vinegar
    • 1 tablespoon canola oil
    • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
    • 1 teaspoon sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt


    •  In a large bowl, combine the cabbage, carrots, green onions and cilantro. In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients. Pour over cabbage mixture and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until chilled.  Yield: 6 servings.
