Asian slaw

I am not much of a cole slaw person. I don’t like all that runny mayo….sweet yuckiness. But I do however, love asian slaw. It’s light, crunchy and goes well as a side dish, or on a sandwhich or you can add some chicken and it’s a meal. It is just crunchy goodness and easy to put together. I hope you will try it.
