Spicy Sweet Asian Slaw Recipe (Thai)


Terrific Alone or on a Burger

This works as a side dish, but I particularly like it as a topping on The Bangkok Breakdown Burger. This makes enough for 2-3 as a sidedish, or enough to top 6 burgers.

1 cup green cabbage, finely shredded

1 cup purple cabbage, finely shredded

1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced

1/4 cup cilantro leaves, left whole

1 Tbl sugar

1 Tbl rice wine vinegar

1 Tbl lime juice

1 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)

  1. Combine all ingredients except cabbage and red onion. Whisk well to combine.
  2. Toss red onion and cabbage together in a medium mixing bow. Top with lime/sugar mixture. Toss well to combine.

As with anything - feel free to adjust the heat to your preference. Add additional red pepper, throw in a dash of cayenne, used crushed Thai chilis - it's your choice!

This is wonderful as a side dish - but I particularly like it as a topping for The Bangkok Breakdown Burger.

I made this but instead of using red pepper flakes I used Huy Fong Food's Chili Garlic Sauce and it added just the right about of kick to the dressing! Highly recommend!

Anyone tried this in homemade eggrolls?
