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)
- Combine all ingredients except cabbage and red onion. Whisk well to combine.
- 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.
