This is a fresh and delicious side dish salad that pairs well with almost any meal. It elevates a simple Turkey Burger to another level . Serve it alongside chicken, seafood and beef for a perfect meal. You’ll probably have most of the ingredients in your pantry and you can substitute powdered ginger for fresh if you don’t have but I recommend using fresh ginger always when you can.
6 cups shredded slaw — it comes in a bag in almost every supermarket as Cole Slaw ( raw) in the salad section
*2 Bell Peppers thinly sliced whatever colors you prefer or a combo this is also optional if you don’t like raw peppers
1/4 cup chopped green onions and you can add more for garnish on the top
*1/4 cup Cilantro Leaves coarsely chopped — I love Cilantro but if you don’t omit it
1/2 cup sliced slivered almonds — lightly toasted in the oven at 350 for a few minutes be careful not to burn set the timer for 3 minutes and check on them because once you start to smell them they’re usually burning
2 teaspoons sesame seeds
2 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
1/4 cup Rice Vinegar
1/4 cup Hoisin Sauce
1 Teaspoon honey
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon fresh ginger finely grated or 1/8 teaspoon powdered ginger
1 Tablespoon toasted sesame oil
Salt and Pepper to taste but you really shouldn’t need much salt at all but adust to your own taste
Place the cabbage cole slaw mix in a bowl with cilantro, green onions and almonds.
Combine all dressing ingredients in a bowl and whisk until well combined.
Pour the dressing over the cabbage mixture. Toss to coat evenly. Sprinkle the sesame seeds over the slaw. Use as much dressing as you need to coat.
